To have a successful business that runs without you needing to be there all the time, you need to find, keep and grow the right team!
Finding and Keeping the right team is not that easy, but an essential key component to your success. As well as finding them, you need to dedicate the time to train them and grow them into the team member you desire.Our private coaching clients all know how important it is to have the right people on their team and that it often takes a bit more than simply sorting through resumes to find the right people for the job and filtering applicants for positions in your business is crucial to finding the right team members.
While you know the qualification and skills that you are looking for in an applicant, there are useful tools and techniques to help you select the right person for the position you need to fill.
Here are few hints to help you in your interview and selection process:
Your applicants should be reliable, motivated and well groomed.
If any applicants can’t show up on time for an interview, what chance do you have of them turning up to work on time and being reliable?
Take note of how they dressed for their interview… Did they come in with the appropriate attire? Remember that your new recruit will be representing you and your business and how they present themselves will directly impact your business – especially if they are dealing directly with your customers!
Do you feel that they possess Honesty and Integrity?
These are two important values you need in your team, as trust in your team is essential for your business to grow. Without trust, you will never feel confident to “let go” and trust them to do their job right and look after your customers properly.
Do they possess the skills you need and do they have the right attitude?
Having the right skill set is important, but the right attitude is critical and often overlooked. You can find many highly qualified people, that have done the courses and got the pieces of paper saying they’re great at their job, but if they have the wrong attitude they will be more trouble than they are worth.
Remember when choosing team members for your business, skills can be taught if needed, but attitude has to be right from the start!
With these few important tips you can get the right staff to help you with growing your business. Remember that a business is like an eco system. We depend on each other to survive, so there must be balance within the atmosphere of your business. Finding, Keeping and Growing the Right Team may be hard and may take time but once you’ve got them, it’s worth all the effort!
There is a whole system for interviewing and selecting the right team members that you have access to as a member or private coaching client to help you choose the right person to suit your needs and avoid the pain of putting adding the wrong person to your team.
