As a hiring manager, you want to build a team that coalesces well, collaborates effectively and generally fits. But, according to this testimonial by Fast Company contributor Bud Caddell, it might be time to consider bringing on some “misfits” to mix things up. According to Caddell, a misfit is someone who, to reclaim the cliché, takes the drum, smashes it, and dances to the shake of their own maracas. As with any business decision that strays from the norm, there are risks. How will your existing team react to tis new agent of change in their midst? Will personality obscure clear progress? But every worthwhile risk presents rewards as well, rewards that could bring your business onto the modern playing field.
