If you have chosen a position that comes with the responsibility of leading people, you have wrestled with this question, "Is this person the right fit?" There are times when that examination is silent in your mind, or it's a full-fledged conversation with someone else for counsel.
We all make bad decisions. Trust me, even the most level-headed exceptional leaders not only have made poor decisions in their career, but they will make them in the future.
With leadership comes responsibility. A significant portion of that responsibility includes being accountable for team members' behaviors.
