A Work in Progress of Hiring Wisdom

John F. Welch Jr., CEO of General Electric, identifies four types of managers: 1) People who deliver on commitments and share the new values—retain and reward these people; 2) People who don't meet commitments and don't share the new values—these people must go; 3) People who sometimes fail to meet their commitments, but who share the values—give them a second chance; 4) People who meet commitments but don't share the values—they must change or go, because their results aren't worth the price.
