Message: How to build a team for your business #JohnMasudParvez #CIO #Founder #President ➡️ Understand the strengths of each individual It’s likely that your new employees will have come from a variety of backgrounds. They'll have different personalities and therefore different ideas about how to do their jobs. ➡️ Explain your business vision Start by setting the scene for your employees. Let them know what they're aiming for and help them to understand the goals of your company. ➡️ Talk about the culture you want to build Plant the seeds of your business culture in your workers' minds so it grows and flourishes. Get them excited about being part of the team and the environment. ➡️ Describe your future plans Create a vision of where your team should be, six months, a year and two years from now. Use your accounting software to draw up realistic financial forecasts and share these with your employees. ➡️ Explain the environment of customers, prospects and partners Use diagrams if necessary to show the interaction between all the people around your company. ➡️ Use 'we' instead of 'I' when talking about your business It's a common startup mistake to associate yourself with your business, but if you want your employees to feel part of a team then you'll need to include them too. ➡️ Get your employees involved It's important to quickly get your employees involved in the day-to-day running of your business. Keep them active and use their strengths to help them integrate and develop. ➡️ Give them tasks right away ➡️ Help your employees to push themselves. Use time lines or specific goals (with their input) for them to strive for. ➡️ Acknowledge their successes ➡️ Use the carrot, not just the stick. Always reward success with praise. ➡️ Mentor your new hires ➡️ Partner your new employees with someone senior on the team. The more mentoring you do, the faster your team will take shape. ➡️ Define roles clearly ➡️ Everyone needs to know their job – what's expected of them and what's not. If you don't make this clear, the morale of your employees will suffer, and progress and efficiency will be affected. ➡️ Consider team-building exercises Small businesses are often fast-paced environments. That means you need to get your team working together quickly. Team-building exercises can help, but there are some important points to consider: ➡️ Budget carefully Days off work will cost you money in terms of lost productivity, plus the cost of the team-building event itself. Good accounting software will keep your accounts up to date, so you can see at a glance what you can afford. ➡️ Don't forget the simple things Something as low key as providing drinks and snacks for the last hour of a Friday afternoon might work well. Not everyone wants to crawl through undergrowth in camouflage clothing. ➡️ Recognize the value of diversity ➡️ Complementary skill sets can mean contrasting personalities. For example (as a general rule only), sales people tend to be extroverts while programrs and developers tend to be more introverted. That reflects the type of person drawn to each role and also the demands of the role itself. ➡️ Trying to 'fix' these differences so everyone's the same will not work. In fact it's likely to backfire badly. At best you'll annoy your employees, at worst you'll breach diversity and equality legislation. ➡️ Extend your team beyond your business ➡️ Ask guest speakers to meet with your team ➡️ Invite customers and key partners to staff meetings ➡️ Have a team coach Consider using the services of someone who can provide real-time ➡️ Let your team know that you value them This is important and quite straightforward. You simply have to take an interest in your staff. ➡️ Show them you care ➡️ Give them the support and tools they need to be successful. This could include things like a healthy working environment, a supportive team or the right software or technical equipment. ➡️ Celebrate the little victories! ➡️ Reward every success, no matter how small it might seem. The goodwill generated will pay you back many times over. Be positive and stay positive ➡️ Don't lose your cool or lose control, as that will set a bad impression and affect morale. ➡️ Identify problems early ➡️ Understand negative team dynamics ➡️ Use your people skills to build your team ==== My LIFE: ➡️ In Professional life my a Chief Information Officer (CIO) / IT Director and my professional life's passion is to help my organization achieve bigger goals by adding values, digital empowerment, transforming the business model. ➡️ In my personal life's passion meet as many many possible people, solve their problem, and also help, guide them to achieve bigger goals in their life.
