There are very few things in business more necessary and more advantageous than building a strong business team. Even the most competent and capable owner simply can’t do everything, especially if you anticipate growing your business beyond the confines of your garage. However, good business teams don’t just happen – someone has to have the knowledge and good judgment to bring together all the right people, so that your business policies and practices can be promoted and extended.
Great team diversity
It happens fairly often that business owners or managers look for people to hire who are very much like themselves. While it may be important to seek out individuals with the same philosophy as yours, it’s much better to hire individuals with different skillsets, different personalities, and different focuses. You need a team composed of dreamers, doers, and directors, in order for a business to thrive.
Establish clear goals
Make sure that everyone on your team understands what your company goals and objectives are, so that each member can contribute in his/her own way toward achieving those goals. Diversity is a great thing as it applies to the makeup of your team, but not toward the specific goals they are expected to achieve – those business goals must all be clearly defined, and clearly understood by all team members.
Allow your team to develop
Once you’ve assembled a team that you feel is comprised of the right kind of people, you have to grant them the freedom to develop into the kind of leaders and contributors that you’re looking for. This means you have to delegate important business tasks to them, and allow them to grow personally, so they can conduct the business capably even in your absence.
