Entrepreneurs are usually driven and focused people who will do anything to achieve their goals, but often they need a strong team to help them on their journey. Building a team for your start-up can be a difficult process because they may not have the passion that you have.
Here are some tips from Smart Start-Up on creating a team for your new business:
- Use your vision and passion to focus the team. When recruiting you should look for individuals who can get excited about trying something new.
- Take your time when hiring people because a bad hire can be devastating for a start-up. You will need starter-finishers on your team, but you will also need a willingness to work together for a common goal.
- Do not celebrate all-nighters. Whilst they may occasionally be necessary in a start-up, all-nighters are not healthy business practice. Do all you can to end this process of staying up all night working.
- Encourage staff to take breaks during long working periods so that they do not burn out.
