How to Build the Perfect Team

Rachel Scava

As small businesses seeking to grow and expand, hiring becomes part of the game. As a business owner, it’s often tempting to do everything yourself. But trust me, with the perfect team in place, you’ll be able to scale and grow in a more sustainable and successful way. Continue reading to learn four tips for building the perfect team.

Without sugarcoating it, there is a risk for failure when you bring new people into the fold.

Entrepreneurs are great at the niche they’ve created their business around. Although, they aren’t always as savvy when it comes to managing and hiring the right people. That’s why when I work with businesses, I emphasize the importance of finding people who fit the culture, especially during the early hiring process.

With the perfect team in place and a commitment to creating synergy with that team, you gain access to growth. The biggest asset you have is people. Building a high-performing team is one of the most effective mechanisms for growing your company. But how do you find those people?

Define Your Core Values

First, be truly committed to what your business is up to. What is your mission? What are your core values? Before you jump into hiring, you need to know what you stand for. This is so someone else can stand for that with you.

Hiring for Culture

From there, you can look at what attributes and personality traits are most in line with your brand. Then develop a hiring strategy around those needs. Remember, you can always teach tangible skills, you can’t teach attitude and personality.

Pay Attention to Personality Types

As far as personality goes, there is a type of person that thrives in a startup culture. That person is hungry and eager to learn and grow. The person who displays initiative and is willing to take risks will prosper in the fast-paced entrepreneurial culture. Unlike traditional corporate positions, look for people who seek forgiveness instead of asking for permission. Opinionated individuals who are willing to take a stand for their beliefs are the kind of employees who will stand up for your company and its mission.

Keep Going!

Hiring isn’t easy. You might strike out a few times and have employees that don’t fit your culture or mesh with your core values. Don’t give up. Having a team and employees who keep you accountable, push you, and generate new ideas will make your business successful and help it grow for years to come!
