How to build a good team for business success

You might have the best business ideas in the world, but it’s hard to develop a business alone. At some point, you’ll need to put together a business team. To begin you should identify what roles you need to fill and find candidates with the appropriate experience. Once the team is in place, you can build a sense of comradery by communicating effectively and engaging in team-building exercises.

1. Hiring the right people :-  The members of your business team should contribute in ways you can’t. Honestly self-assess what skills you lack. Then go out and find people with those skills.

2.Defind roles clearly :- Employees need to know their job duties. Undefined roles can create confusion and lower your team’s morale. Work won’t be completed on time, and people will begin stepping on each other’s toes. Before advertising your job, you should spend some time outlining the duties of each new hire.

3.Ask your network for referrals:- Instead of immediately placing a “help wanted” ad online, you should ask people you know if they would recommend someone for the job.

4.look for relevant experience :- Ideally, the people you hire will have the appropriate experience to jump right into their jobs. If you are a startup or a small business, you might not have a lot of time to train people. Employees will also feel more engaged if they are able to immediately contribute to the team.

5. Discribe your vision to job candidates:- You should let potential employees know how you see the business. Remember to discuss the following with potential hires:

* The type of culture you want to build. For example, you might want a business culture that is horizontal, not hierarchical, where everyone participates in meaningful business decisions. Alternately, you might want a culture dedicated to expanding as rapidly as possible.

*Your plans. Tell potential hires where you see the business in the short-term and long-term.

6.Find job candidates committed to your business :- Instead of having a standard interview, you should mix things up so that you can gauge a person’s interest in your business. 

7.Seek out diversity :- If all of your employees are like you, then you’ll never feel challenged at work. Your business will benefit from a diversity of personalities and life experiences. Find people who aren’t like you by paying attention to communication styles when interviewing.

8. Don't hire family or friends :- People close to you will lack the incentive to be truthful. Instead, they’ll want to avoid crushing your dream. It’s better to hire people who will level with you.

9.Check in after a month :- Once you’ve hired someone, schedule a meeting one month in. Check to see how the employee is doing.
