Build Your Action Plan

In this video we will learn what it takes to build the right team in your organisation.
You never know what to expect in business and unless you have the right team in place, it would be very hard for a company to navigate the challenges and make use of the opportunities that arise.
To build your team, you need to think about 3 key considerations:
  1. Hire right by making sure that you are getting people that are in line with your values, culture and are passionate about what you are doing
  2. Give opportunities for development by having your team members do job rotations, get put on special projects, pursue some side projects and be responsible for their learning
  3. Fire Fast when there is a mismatch between the individuals’ attitude and your objectives or strategy. Don’t let things linger so that it doesn’t spill over to others
By following these 3 key considerations and continuously rewarding – even if it is a slap on the back – great behaviors and performance you will ensure that you have a cohesive team that is all rowing in the same direction.
Remember, your talent is your most important asset!

You know, as most entrepreneurs do, that a company is only as good as its people. The hard part is actually building the team that will embody your company’s culture and propel you forward. Kathryn Minshew
