How do I build the right team?


It is absolutely essential you have the right people working together to move the business forward.


Make sure each employee understands the company’s values. Ask yourself some questions – what talent do I need to achieve these goals? What personalities do I want working for the business?


Consider your weaknesses, and then start looking for staff members to compensate for them. Also give your staff members some tests to provide you with information on how they react – who is able to pass easily? Do team members work well together? Do they approach the task positively?


Set clear goals for your staff, promote open communication and provide an appropriate leadership structure. Take an interest in your staff, learn about their interests – you may find they can use these interests to help the business advance.
