    Advice to Management

    Don't hire someone within just because it's convenient. A leader must be chosen correctly, otherwise you risk destroying a team. You're better off hiring a great leader with less experience, than an average/neutral leader with excess of experience. You're hiring someone that can MANAGE and LEAD employees and do some of the work. But a lot more of the work entails LEADERSHIP. Leadership > Experience

    A bad leader can destroy and suffocate a great team/employees. I've seen it happen.
