This is one of my favorite mantras from Jim Collins. “Get the right people on the bus. Build a superior executive team. Once you have the right people in place, figure out the best path to greatness.” I’ve always loved assembling a really smart, engaged group of people and then watching them germinate new ideas and figure out really complex problems. Naturally, I am taking the same approach toward my school newspaper. We have some editors who don’t give a shit, and I want them out. Most people around here are scared of any sort of confrontation. I’m not. Some get it, some don’t. Those who do, do. Those who don’t, don’t. Some will, some won’t. I like working/mentoring people, but if you don’t have a passion or don’t want to get better, you shouldn’t be in a driver’s seat.
