Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav has a piece of advice for hiring employees who will boost your company's success: Hire the "doers."
In a wide-ranging interview with CNBC contributor Suzy Welch, Zaslav says it's essential to select the right people for a team. Otherwise, it may be impossible to hit goals.
Zaslav has had an extensive career in the media industry. He's been CEO of Discovery since 2007 and before that, he spent nearly two decades working on a variety of different projects at NBC, including the launch of CNBC and MSNBC.
Welch asks Zaslav point-blank: "When you're hiring, do you look at somebody and say, 'This person is gonna give me bad news fast?'"
