Most managers do a poor job of hiring. With the average employee turnover rate around 20-30% annually, that percentage is almost entirely a reflection on poor hiring practices.
Many managers are looking for someone just like themselves in terms of mannerisms, appearance, culture and skill sets.
David G. Javitch, Ph.D, writing in Entrepreneur magazine, calls this hiring practice "mirror-hiring".
In truth, you want to hire to your weaknesses, and not your natural strengths. An honest assessment of your strengths and weaknesses combined with your desire to bring in people who have a different skill set can only help you and your team.
