When it comes to expanding a business or finding a team that can handle your business without you having to give them any input at all, you’ll need some trustworthy experts and a team that is delegated to your vision as much as you are. The problem with this is that not everyone plays well with another person. When it comes to a team of experts, it’s challenging to manage because there’s constant competition. There are ways to eliminate that, and that’s what we’ll be talking about today. Also, I’m going to reveal the real reason why your team probably isn’t performing their best even though they know they can do more.
Creating a team isn’t just about getting the best people or looking for someone with all the skills you’ll need.
Just like a business, you need to nurture them, care for them, and build them in the right way for them to fit into your business and grow.
I used to find someone who knows how to fix the problem and hire them. That’s usually what we do as business owners since it’s the cheaper option, and we don’t have to give too much input.
The problem here is that, while they fix the problem, they’re not invested in your business at all, and they’re there for the pay.
Now imagine hiring someone like this and placing them in a crucial role in your business. You have immediate doubts, you’re always worried about what they’re thinking, and they’re probably not going to give their 100% effort when working on the tasks you give them.
So how do we fix this?
Here are a few solutions that can improve your team almost immediately after you implement them:
Have constant meetings with the whole team
It doesn’t have to be for business. Set up a meeting with the whole team to talk about some ideas. Do some brainstorming and make sure that everyone is all right.
It may seem trivial to some but building a good business relationship with your team goes a long way, especially since they’re the people who will be managing your business once you start multiplying your brand or scaling it.
Knowing their pain points and their strengths are crucial to understanding how they can grow within your company. This way, you won’t need to keep dusting up your job post and look for a new freelancer every few months.
You’ll have people you can trust, people you can leave the business with, and you have 100% confidence in what they can do for you and the company.
It doesn’t need to be big… but reward the people who delegate more.
When you’ve established a good relationship with the team you’re building; some members step up. These are the freelancers who are eager and willing to become the leaders in your organization.
Do NOT leave this unnoticed.
Even though they might not be asking for anything, you should recognize their efforts and thank them for the work and contributions to your organization.
Also, this way, they have something to look forward to for their hard work and dedication. As I said, it doesn’t need to be significant. But something meaningful that they can appreciate.
Have regular team-building sessions
Like having regular team meetings, team building sessions are an essential factor in your team’s growth. This can come in the form of a simple team meeting like what I mentioned above, you can have some brainstorming sessions to improve the business and get the whole team involved more, or you can even have a team in-person meet once every few years.
This helps build a strong bond with the whole team.
But it can’t be all fun and games.
While building a good work relationship with the team is one of the core things to build a strong foundation when you want to start multiplying your company, it can’t be all happy and fun at all times.
As long as the whole team is established, having some strict business days won’t be a problem at all anymore because once you build a strong bond with your team, they will most likely be aligned with your goals and visions for the company.
There’s time for being a team, and there’s time for work, and as a business owner or an entrepreneur with a team, you have to set that line and make sure everyone is on board.
The best part when having a team that’s 100% behind you and your business is that you can easily start scaling or even multiplying your business exponentially without worrying.
