*********** Think about this, coaches, when you're tempted to go out and hire an assistant you don't know a thing about...

Larry Baer is the President and CEO of the San Francisco Giants, and in a Wall Street Journal interview, he stressed the importance of hiring people of character for jobs in the Giants' organization.

He noted that a venture capitalist whom he knows (aside: a venture capitalist is a guy who can come up with the money to stake your venture when nobody else will even look at you. In return, he'll take a piece of the action. But he isn't going to risk a dime unless he likes your idea. And trusts you.) told him that when he invests in something or someone, "he would much rather put his money behind an A person values-wise with B talent than A talent and B values."

Baer suggested one very good way of finding out about the character of the person you hire:  about 70 per cent of the Giants' new hires have come through their internship program.
