Creating A Team

October 26, 20233 min read

"The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." - Phil Jackson

Do you feel like you keep lowering your standards to meet your team where they are at?

If so, it's time to take a closer look at your team. The truth is, the difference between a good and extraordinary business is the difference between having a good and extraordinary team.

Building an extraordinary team is like building a championship sports team. You need to have the right mix of talent, experience, and chemistry. And if you want to win, you need to be willing to invest in your team.

Why Business Owners Hire the Wrong Team

One of the biggest mistakes business owners make is hiring out of desperation. They need to fill positions quickly, so they don't take the time to find the right people for the job.

This can lead to a team that is full of misfits and round pegs in square holes. And when you have the wrong people on your team, it's impossible to scale your business successfully.

How to Build the Right Team

So how do you build a team that will help you scale your business to new heights? Here are a few tips:

  1. Create a profile of the desired employee characteristics and their responsibilities. What kind of person do you need to fill each role? What skills, experience, and personality traits are important? For example, an administrator needs to be detail-oriented and organized, while a salesperson should be money-motivated and extraverted.

  2. Come up with interview questions that specifically target those characteristics. Don't just ask generic questions like "What are your strengths and weaknesses?" Instead, ask questions that will help you assess the candidate's fit for the role and the company culture. For example, you could ask an administrator candidate: "Do you prefer to have steps A-Z laid out or do you prefer having a general guideline and figuring it out yourself?" If you have a small business without standard operating procedures, then you may want someone who can figure it out. If your business is more established and has established processes for most things, you may want people who are more inclined to stick to your process.

  3. Make sure they align with your values and culture. Sometimes the highest qualified candidate may not be the best choice for your company. If their values and personalities don't mesh with the rest of the team, it's going to be difficult for them to be successful. Do you have employees that you thought were going to crush it, but they seem to keep falling short of your expectations? Chances are they were really qualified, but just don't align with your culture.

Examples of the Difference Between Good and Extraordinary Teams

Here are a few examples of the difference between good and extraordinary teams:

  1. Good team: A good team is able to execute on the tasks that are given to them. They are reliable and competent.

  2. Extraordinary team: An extraordinary team is able to do more than just execute on tasks. They are proactive, creative, and innovative. They are constantly looking for ways to improve the business.

  3. For example, a good sales team will be able to hit their sales goals. An extraordinary sales team will develop new sales strategies and find ways to close more deals.

If you want to scale your business to new heights, you need to invest in building an extraordinary team. Take the time to find the right people for the job, and make sure they align with your values and culture. If you have the right team in place, anything is possible. Your team will help you achieve your goals and dreams. So take the time to build the right team, and invest in their success. And if you're looking for a way to accelerate your team's growth or just plain feel like your team isn't working, schedule a call with me and we can pinpoint what the problem is and how to solve it.
