Micah Rowland isn’t your everyday builder. Maybe because he doesn’t build homes, cabinets, or even the software that he used to as an engineer. As Chief Operations Officer COO of Fountain, Micah builds people, teams, and processes that has taken multiple companies from 50 to 250 people and $5 million to $30 million in revenue.

In this episode, Audrey, Lee and Micah discuss:

  • Why "Hire Slow, Fire Fast" is Terrible Advice
  • The top reasons why companies have trouble hiring and firing
  • The areas managers are deficient in that cause hiring/firing issues within an organization
  • Hiring/Firing techniques for startups

"Often times the biggest impediment to letting someone go is management trying to cope with the hole in their absence"
