ASSEMBLING THE TEAM
MY MODEL FOR BUSINESS IS THE BEATLES. THEY WERE FOUR GUYS WHO KEPT EACH OTHERS NEGATIVE TENDENCIES IN CHECK. THEY BALANCED EACH OTHER AND THE TOTAL WAS GREATER THAN THE SUM OF THE PARTS. THATS HOW I SEE BUSINESS: GREAT THINGS IN BUSINESS ARE NEVER DONE BY ONE PERSON, THEYRE DONE BY A TEAM OF PEOPLE. Steve Jobs
A managers first challenge is picking the
right people for the team.
HERES HOW TO DO IT
SKILLS YOU NEED Understand what skills you need for your team.Success hinges on having the right people for the right roles.Draw up a list of the skills, qualification and experience needed for the team, keep this in mind at every stage of the selection process.
02Some skills are indispensable. Double up on people with those skills in case a problem arises.This means the team can be flexible in the face of unexpected circumstances.
DOUBLE UP ON ESSENTIAL SKILLS
03It is important to hire the necessary amount of people, whilst staying within the budget.Too many can cause confusion, too few puts pressure on the staff.Gain a full understanding of the exact needs of your team and goals and the right number will be easier to calculate.
GET THE RIGHT NUMBER OF PEOPLE
04Skills arent the be all and end all, the team must work well with each other to be most productive.The best team will be not too dissimilar in temperament to one another, but diverse enough to have unique ideas.A manager should gauge the personalities in the selection process to ensure they will be a good fit and if they will work for the team as a whole.
THE RIGHT PERSONALITIES
05The best results will come from people who are genuinely interested and committed to the task.While skills are important, it is vital to have enthusiastic team members who will go the extra mile for the project.You should select those who are enthusiastic from the start as they are most motivated to see the teams goals through.
