When you hire a new person for your team, you always want to have that little voice inside your head saying – “I think this person can be better me”.
If you do, hire them.
If you don’t, don’t hire them.
As a Leader, your job is to make sure that every person leaps over you, maybe switching groups, taking on new projects, leaving the organization, whatever it is.
You always want people that can have the ability to surpass you.
For the one reason – that no matter where they land, no matter where you land – you will push each other to become that much better than if you were not together.
