About this Episode

Although hiring, firing and performance reviews are rarely the stuff entrepreneurial dreams are made of, they are elements that come into play as your practice grows. Aysun Kuck has worked with Kimberley Seldon Design Group for more than 20 years, running an office that consisted of 13 designers plus support staff.

In this episode we learn:

  • a process for hiring is the surest way to get quality staff
  • candidates who do not follow the basic rules for the hiring process should be immediately disqualified from the process
  • firing is an inevitable part of the job
  • saying yes to every opportunity, without restrictions is not the best way to grow your brand
