If you own a business you know that it’s a team effort. You should know, however, that each team has their own strengths and weaknesses. If you have created a team there is usually a hierarchy of people in each team. The people in that team should understand their roles and the various steps involved in the process.
If you don’t decide to have a team right away then the easiest thing to do is hire a team to help you out. Is that a bad idea? I’m going to answer my own question with another question: Does it make a difference?
It does make a difference because every business owner can benefit from teambuilding. What is a team? A team can be members in analogous jobs who help to focus on and tackle the specific task at hand. Often a team is co-located in an office, with some even living a ASSOCIATION life in many cases.
I grew up in a very big family and I grew up feeling like I should do things alone! But it said, quite loudly and clearly, “You are not allowed to do this alone”. Over time I began to learn the benefits of teamwork and I have used teamwork in all my businesses my size as a key to out- excelling my competitors in an extremely competitive and responsive market.
Regardless of the size of your company or the nature of your business, teams are key to growth. You can join a group of six people to play soccer and take up baseball. You can get a group together to drive a car or a truck. You can form a team of musicians to draft, sing, and begin a band. What I suggest is that you take the time to decide as a small business owner what your goals are and then get any help you need to accomplish your goals.
If your goal is to start a new business you should do just that. But if your goal is to grow a business based on your current and past success you will need to choose the correct people to build your team. A tennis trophy has two people on it and the same is true for a basket. I recently did an event in Vegas and I put up the best players in the world. But to help them win I needed the best coaches available to them to maximize their chances to win at the court or court.
A team does not need six or a hundred people on a daily basis. You can have a group of like minded business minds who are committed to achieving a goal. The inevitable result if you accomplish a goal is the creation of a team. Group of people, who are all working to accomplish the same goal, is the basis of a team.
So why do I use teams in my poker88? In my businesses I have used teams to grow a practice. I established a support group, whom I trained over time to serve me. We worked on returns, as well as the branding of and the marketing of my services. One of the ongoing goals of this team is to improve my game and the competitive spirit of the group helped to accomplish this.
The list could go on and on and you will find many ways to leverage team building and what I call teams. One of the main reasons that a group of team members come together as one is to build a team. In networking groups I am a member of non-competitive groups. The nature of these groups allow me to meet other people and share resources.
Over time as the group becomes more successful you will find that the competition or challenge has become less significant. The competition in the group has become more “positive” and has helped me build a support system and rewarding MTigue. Without each of us attempting to gain the other’s attention we are much more likely to be successful for the long run.
Working as a team also has an increase in ego and that is an added benefit. You all put out the maximum, you get the maximum. So, how you do, is up to you. Building these teams is a process and you must be very careful to weed the people out. It will be unlikely that you will build a team of 6D People to replace the four of five people in your group. So be careful.
