Characteristics of fast growing companies : Part-4
The Team Construction:-
When any playing team wins a tournament , they always give credit to their team bonding and how every player had a vital role. The same is true in the business world. Businesses with high-performing teams are more successful and see a big boost in their bottom line. That is why it is very important to get just the right people on the bus.
When you begin with a startup, you are of course nervous about hiring the right employees, as you know that you can't perform each job yourself. Adding the wrong person to your team hurts , but it stings even more in a startup. You are also a little bit scared of it. But when you approach hiring in a sensible, well-ordered way, you can alleviate the fear of hiring the wrong person.
You have to go a little different about the hiring process. Do not go by the traditional method of posting a job on giant career websites. Instead try to post on your website, and platforms like LinkedIn. Pick a candidate whose skills resonate with your company values. Try to see that while you interview the candidate, he/she just does not recite the resume. Ask some practical questions and see how the candidate reacts to those questions. And once you find a perfect match for your company, be quick in appointing that person. Because a qualified candidate is always high on demand.
The next crucial step is that once you get the right people, be a good leader and manage your team. A great team always demands a great leader. That's your job. Make sure you work to make the team cohesive and hard-working. Don't ask more of them than you ask of yourself. If you do all of this, you'll have a great team and a successful project.
So by paying attention to your candidates, seeing that they spend a lot of time together, not only working but also while enjoying, nurturing them, and ultimately trusting your instinct, you can have a team of your dream.
