Why do we wait to be sure about appointing a new staff member even when we know we have to?

How much assurance do we need? Everyone who has ever had to hire staff has been burnt at some time, when things have gone wrong. This story is as old as business itself.
What we do know is that if we don’t hire staff, we effectively don’t have a business. This in turn stunts growth and stifles business progress.

This lack of confidence to confirm a new appointment is all about failure and is a deeply personal issue. Is this you? If you wait too long, you maybe replaced because you cannot appropriately select staff. Then it maybe you who is looking for a job next, so do it now. Unfortunately no one else will do this for you, because this is what a manager does…………….. MANAGE PEOPLE.
