One response to “Startup Mantra: Hire Fast, Fire Fast”

    Agree with you on the fire fast part if you really mean the first part. If you always think you’re the smartest person in the room and you’re not willing to empower people then you’re going to get people who won’t work out, not because they’re bad but because you won’t relinquish any part of the decision process. Not good. And not likely to scale.
