At SaaS North last week, I listened to Michael Litt from Vidyard talk about some of the problems you go through when growing a startup. One of the biggest is hiring, and knowing when to fire.
He explained that if there are people talking about a problem, but not addressing it directly, it’s the tip of the fuckberg.
He also talked about the four quadrants of a hire. On one axis is cultural fit, and the other is talent. Low performers, but high cultural fit is a coaching and training opportunity. Low cultural fit, and high performers must go.
Great talk from the Vidyard CEO!
