How do you hire people who are smarter than you?
I keep hearing this all the time from Guy Kawasaki : Hire people who are smarter than you.
Is that just nice idea that can't be implemented? Or does he having problem of communicating what he is trying to say?
I can't figure out how I or anyone one else for that matter can do that because if I was looking for a job I certainly wouldn't work for stupid bosses. Employees have to respect their bosses and be inspired by them. How can stupid boss inspire smart employees?
What I can think of right now is:
Hire smartest people that you can get for the areas in which don't have expertise in.
Hire smartest people that you can get that only want to specialize in their niche area of expertise and work for a boss and don't have any entrepreneurial aspirations.
