How to Build the Right Team?

A good team of individuals full of passion for what your business does, and for what they do in your business, will inevitably drive your company forward. To begin building the right team, you first need to identify what the word “right” means to you and to your business. Start by taking stock of the following:

  • Create a bullet point list of your key business objectives that depend on your team’s performance.
  • Decide which roles directly contribute to achieving those objectives.
  • Determine what skills and qualifications are necessary for your team members to perform in those key roles.
  • Do not forget to consider the talent and affinity of your team members for certain tasks and jobs.
  • Make sure everyone is in the most appropriate role for their skill set.

Start by analysing your business objectives to create a list of the key goals you want your company to achieve, then figure out what roles and jobs in your business are directly responsible for helping you to achieve those goals. Consider the talents, skills, and qualifications of your team members currently in those roles to determine whether everyone’s abilities are leveraged adequately and to their full potential. In a nutshell, make sure not only that you are hiring the best people for the role, but also that everyone’s role makes the most of what they can do for your business.

Building the right team is not only about effective job assignment, however. Make sure to also:

  • Value the ideas your employees bring to the table.
  • Encourage emotional intelligence.
  • Set goals and inspire achievement.
  • Define the rules of the game.
  • Set standards of quality.

Job satisfaction can greatly contribute to creating better performing workers and consequently teams. Make sure to encourage a collaborative environment where ideas are valued and where brainstorming as well as problem solving are welcome and encouraged. Respect the ideas your employees bring to the table – the ability to constructively contribute can be a great source of professional satisfaction for your staff and encourage higher performance. Be sensitive to the feelings of others – emotional intelligence is one of the most important skills in modern business, it is the ability to understand the emotions of others and express one’s own empathically and judiciously in consideration of one’s peers. Additionally, make sure to define clear goals for your team members and inspire achievement, but do not be afraid to set standards of quality your team should strive for and the rules they need to play by in your business.

With just these few tips, you will be well on your way to not only building the right team for the business, but you will also be creating a supportive work environment that encourages performance, achievement and commitment to quality in your employees.
