Hire for Attitude

Just as there are people who brighten a room by entering it, there are those who brighten a room by leaving it.

Don't underestimate the influence of negativity. One person with a negative attitude can pull down an entire team.

I don't care how brilliant a person is, if that brilliance is accompanied by a lousy attitude, you're usually wiser to go with a reasonably smart but uplifting alternative.

As the old line goes, hire for attitude and train for skill.
