068: Anne Sugar’s Hiring to Scale Process

Positioning your company for hyper-growth requires “leveling up” people as well as processes and tools. Many leaders (and investors) interpret leveling up as replacing existing personnel with more qualified people.

In this episode, Anne Sugar, an executive coach for the Harvard Business School Executive Program, provides an in-depth case study of a hiring process she coached an H.R. executive through as she set out to answer four key questions in preparation for expansion.
