There are No Shortcuts When You are Building an A-Team
July 1, 2021
There are no shortcuts when you are building an A-team. To build an A-team that will carry out their training and succeed 100% of the time, you have to become a professional at hiring and recruiting. You can’t just hire or recruit anyone. If anyone you hired could do any job or task, building a team would be easy.
Human beings are unique, and everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. Whereas some people will be a great fit for a role that consists of working behind the scenes, they may not be cut out for a different role that involves working in the frontlines. Determine what role you are trying to fill and what person would be best suited to fill that role. Think about what an ideal candidate for that position looks like, and then only look for people who fit that profile.
Don’t waste time training people who are not fit for the role you are trying to fill. You will spend so much time training people to do things they aren’t good at, don’t want to do, and have no passion for. Think to yourself, “Does this person understand my goals and share my passion to succeed? Do their strengths and weaknesses make sense for the job I am asking them to do?”
There are no shortcuts when you are building an A-team. It is up to you to put in the work to hire and recruit like a professional if you want to build an A-team.Understand the role that you are hiring or recruiting for, explain the role thoroughly, and make sure the person wants to do the task at hand. I strongly believe that it takes more than one person to create greatness. When you have an A-team, you put yourself and your team in a position to succeed.
