It’s Going To Be A Bumpy Ride

I’ve made my choices. The phone calls have been made.

I’m hiring potential.

80% of the votes said that I should hire to person who some day may be great, but isn’t quite there yet. One person said it best, “potential can be molded.” I do think this is the right way to go. My gut was telling me to hire potential. You helped me confirm that was the right thing to do. Thank you.

Now I know that this route is going to be more difficult. That all of my teaching skills will be tested. And for those of you who know me, I can be brutally honest when it comes to looking at creative work. I will try to be nice. I will try to behave.

I can’t make any promises.

So now I have a different choice to make. Should I assign the interns to one creative group for all 15 weeks, or rotate them through three different experiences every five weeks. Or a rotation every three weeks. I’m leaning to the five week rotation.

What do you think ?

Of course, there’s another option — don’t assign the interns to any specific group, and have them work where ever the greatest need may be on any individual week. It could be fun. It could be a disaster. OK, I just talked myself out of that idea.

No matter what I choose, I know it’s going to be a bit bumpy. But just like bumper cars at an amusement park, it’s also going to be a lot of fun.

Have a great weekend. Talk to you on Monday.
