How to know if you're ready to hire and how to EVEN start…
The truth is, when hiring a team member, you're never really ready.
Ready is a mindset, it's not a circumstance!
Building a team is a HUGE investment. It's the same kind of investment as hiring a coach or joining a program so we need to look at both as the same.
With a team, you’re getting your time back which is just as valuable as money, as well as having that incredible support system.
Here’s the first step to take when you’re considering to start bringing on a team:
Make a list of everything you are still doing in your business that's outside your zone of genius.
This can be…
- Administrative work
- Client care
- Miscellaneous tasks or duties that you feel may not be your strong suit
This list gets you thinking about all the moving pieces that will make your business operate and function properly.
Now, take that list and break it into 2 lists.
List #1: Decide which are your least favorite tasks.
List #2: Decide which tasks you feel you can do relatively quickly.
From there, you can decide who’s best for those positions and dive deep into who you're looking for.
Why patience is KEY for building a team.
This was one lesson I had to learn the hard way.
I used to expect people to come on my team and automatically think like me and make decisions like me.
NEWSFLASH, that's never going to happen.
I realized I wasn't leading them or giving them the resources they needed. I just expected them to know everything and this was a huge realization for me.
Here’s the shift I made…
I took a step back, downsized my team, and made sure every single person that came in was given full attention.
You have to give the people you hire TOOLS and GUIDANCE to be successful and fulfill the areas of support you need.
Once I realized this concept, my team totally transformed for the better.
