Investing in People

investing in peopleI invest a lot…in people.  Every single person I hire, I invest time, money, energy, and knowledge.  And when I invest, I expect a return on my investment.  Truth be told, I expect an exponential return.

Sometimes our investments don’t pan out.  Nobody bats a thousand.  But the person who may have turned out to be a poor investment for me will never be considered an “expense”, overhead, or a waste of time.  There’s always learning and growth involved.  I simply must rebalance our portfolio and re-invest elsewhere to maximize our returns for our team and future.

But in looking at my “portfolio” of investments (i.e. people), including those I’m currently investing in as well as those who turned out to be poor investments and are no longer in my portfolio, I think my return on investment is making even Warren Buffet jealous.
