Growing a Business? Don’t Build A Team Of Superstars.

Building effective teams in business can take lessons from major sports. Recruit for your team’s needs. Don’t acquire all superstars for your team, but people who balance one another. Competition from the supporting cast keeps the star players razor sharp understanding that someone in line is ready to take his place. Try to be like your favorite coach. Research his teaching styles and win the way he does. Push for excellence and winning the way he does. This creates a culture withing your business and revolutionizes your environment.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is important to hire a well-rounded team instead of only hiring those who look great on paper. Avoid hiring a team of people with identical strengths.
  • Concentrate on the 70% of employees who work hard and want to move up. They keep the top 20% sharp and focused and form the core of the team.
  • The role of the CEO and company leaders is to manage the team. Hire and manage employees to take advantage of strengths and build areas of weakness.
