Your Startup Has People Problems? Play The “No Blame” Game

Hiring the wrong people can kill a new business, but what can definitely sink that ship is not having a clear and written procedure for people in certain positions to follow. Job descriptions are a great place to start, this way people know what is and is not expected of them in their daily duties. Another great tip is to have goals. Whether it is production deadlines, project benchmarks, or just sales, having these in place will help you as a boss to gauge the employees’ progress and performance. Finally have updates meeting periodically. even if it is just to check in and make sure things are running smoothly, it is a good opportunity for team members to air ideas.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is obvious that a business model is lacking and understandable format
  • There is an overall need for structure that is clear and easy to follow
