How to build a top-notch team

How to build a top-notch team 

When we start to hire team members, we don’t need any specific person–we just need help. So we hire someone young, energetic and creative (oh, and cheap) because we really don’t know exactly what they are going to do.

Over time, they start to do lots of things, mostly things they enjoy; and you are still stuck working on the parts of the job that no one enjoys… When they get stuck on something, they send it back to your desk (because they don’t know what to do) and now you are back doing that thing you hired someone to do. So you hire another young, flexible, creative person and the cycle repeats itself. This is strategy is less than ideal.

In fact, it’s all backwards.

When you are small, you can’t afford to have someone who just does one thing. Everyone has to be in charge of multiple things, right? We need people to pitch in and pinch hit wherever they are needed. However, the more flexibility our company structure has, the less accountability it has. And the less you can hold people accountable, the more their work ends up back on your desk. You end up having to pick up all the slack.

It’s time to put an end to this! The Building Your Team Structure exercise will help you do just that.
