Building A Team

As a small business owner, take risks with the employees you hire.

You need to hire people who are smarter than you, better than you, and different from you. And if they are more experienced than you, that’s even better.

It’s important to hire people who can do things better than you and give them some autonomy over their work—then let them do it without you getting in the way. It’s also a good idea to hire someone whose skills complement yours: an expert in sales might be useful for a company with no sales team or lots of new products; a person with a strong technical background could help an engineering-heavy organization build new products faster.

Your employees are a valuable resource, and they can help you to build a successful business. If they’re not able to do it because of lack of time or experience, ask them how they’d feel about receiving training or mentoring.

If that doesn’t work, then try hiring someone with the right skill set who will help you grow your business!

In wrapping up, building a dynamic team is akin to crafting a beautiful mosaic—each piece, with its distinct colour and shape, contributes to a larger, cohesive masterpiece. Remember, it’s not just about hiring the best; it’s about recognizing the brilliance in others that you might lack.

When building a team, always look for individuals that challenge you!

Surrounding oneself with individuals who challenge, complement, and sometimes even outshine you isn’t a sign of weakness but of wisdom. It’s like having diverse spices in a dish, where each one enhances the flavour of the other.

As you chart your journey in team building, be daring, invest deeply in the relationships, and cherish every learning curve, both yours and theirs. After all, it’s the personal connections we make along the way that turn our business ventures into meaningful stories.
