Would you agree that one of the most challenging aspects of being self-employed at this level is the revolving door of team members?
I know firsthand the frustration of investing time, effort, and resources into hiring and training only to see talented individuals leave within a short span of time. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
After close to 25 years of being self-employed and running a team, and countless trials and errors, I have discovered the key to building a team that not only stays but thrives alongside you for five, seven, or even more years. Watch this to find out how:
Here are the 3 steps I discovered and still use myself:
The first golden nugget of wisdom I want to share with you is this: hire for where you’re going, not where you are right now. It’s essential to envision the future of your business and select team members based on the roles they will play in that vision. Instead of solely focusing on their personality, concentrate on finding individuals who possess the specific skills and expertise needed to fulfill the demands of your growing enterprise.
Why is this crucial? Well, hiring based on personality alone may lead to team members who struggle with certain aspects of their role as your business expands. This mismatch can impact their confidence and ultimately make them consider leaving. By hiring for a role rather than solely relying on personality, you ensure that your team members feel equipped and confident in their responsibilities. This fundamental shift sets the stage for both scaling your business and fostering long-term relationships with your valuable team.
Next, let’s dive into the importance of understanding the unique brilliance of each team member. Every individual on your team has areas where they excel, where their talents truly shine. Identifying these strengths and aligning team members with tasks that fall within their unique brilliance is a recipe for success and job satisfaction. By providing your team members with tasks that truly ignite their passion and allow them to showcase their brilliance, you create an environment where happiness and loyalty flourish. We teach you how to figure this out in our signature program.
Lastly, I want to emphasize the power of making each team member feel significant, loved, and heard. Yes, I do mean truly LOVED, because when each member of your team feels like an extended family or dear friend, their dedication knows no bounds. I have witnessed far too many examples of businesses that struggle to retain team members after decades of operation. Often, this stems from failing to foster a culture of significance and love.
By cultivating an environment where team members feel valued and appreciated, you unlock their full potential, and they become invaluable assets in propelling you closer to your goals.
Now, I understand that implementing these strategies on your own may seem completely overwhelming or uncertain, which is why I’m delighted to offer you an opportunity to get some clarity around your next steps, at no charge.
