How Elon Musk Hires: 'It Matters Whether Someone Has A Good Heart'

Business Insider

Technology entrepreneur and SpaceX founder Elon Musk told the audience at South by Southwest, a large conference in Austin, the biggest mistake he's ever made.

It has to do with hiring the wrong people.

For a long time, Musk says he hired talented people over kind people, but he tries to balance that now.

"[My biggest mistake is probably] weighing too much on someone's talent and not someone's personality," said Musk. "I think it matters whether someone has a good heart."
