      Four Questions This Founder Asks Himself After Interviewing Job Candidates

      I was reminded of that the other day tossing a ball to my toddler (yes, him). He dove away from the ball after being bonked on the head one too many times, and something dawned on me: Everyone’s afraid of the ball, just at different speeds.

      How To Be More Assertive At Work When That’s Just Not Your Personality

As a result, agreeable people may be put off from asking in the first place.

We would talk about his family and the different things he was working on. Then one day I got an email from his wife.
