[Reblog] Don’t Marry Someone You Intend to Change

November 27, 2013

Leadership


This article partly inspired yesterday’s post on my favourite interview question for new grads. It is so important to hire the right people for the job. The candidate’s strengths need to be a fit for the position and, if he/she is able to learn quickly and autonomously any missing skills can easily be trained.

If you know you shouldn’t marry someone you intend to change, why would you hire someone with the same intention?

About Liza Wood

After a dozen years leading video game development projects in a variety of roles, I decided to pursue a Master of Data Science at the University of British Columbia. Studying data science doesn’t mean I’m moving away from leading people. Growing data science teams need collaborative, pragmatic, Agile leadership to connect data to all areas of the business. I would like to share that point of view, along with my experiences, on this blog.
