3 Tips for building your startup squad

Updated: Oct 25, 2018

It’s never easy to achieve startup success without an effective team in the early growth stages. You may view the founder as the most important factor of a new business’s success. But the founder’s ability to build a great team around them is even more crucial.

Mark Zuckerberg once mentioned at a conference, “The most important thing for you as an entrepreneur trying to build something is, you need to build a really good team,”

The team’s personalities, values and actions have great impacts on the direction of the company in ways both active and passive. We have compiled 3 key factors for building your perfect squad to help jumpstart your success!

Communication is key

A startup team should be the closest team a business can ever form. Communicate the common goal to work towards and understand that communication is paramount for the success of the company.

First, understand your team members.

Second, Break down your words into specific point of views and explain to your team.

Third, point your team in the right direction to turn vision into action.

Finally, you must demonstrate the benefits of achieving the company’s vision to gain buy-in from team members.

Knowing their strengths and weaknesses

It’s all about balance. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.

As a leader, you must find the right people for your business.

Identify what they are good at and place them in the position where they can shine. But not to forget people are not flawless.  Mitigate your team’s limitations through the team work and skills of their collaborators.

Share the moment with your team

If you want to be the new shining star in the industry, you need more than just hard work.

In fact, when you and your team have worked the hardest, turn the moment into a memorable time for winning and accomplishing great things.

Appreciate your team’s effort and encourage them to strive more and grow together with your business.
