"hire virtual team"As a coach, consultant, service professional, speaker or author, are you frustrated with not finding the right people to help you in your business?  Perhaps you have hired people before, and it just hasn’t worked out?

.

Are your hiring strategies working for you?

.

Time and time again, I see posts in Facebook or Twitter from people who are asking, “Does anyone know of a good…?”  You can fill in the blank with any title you wish: Virtual Assistant, Marketing Manager, Graphic Designer, Web Programmer, Social Media Expert, etc.  In fact, I have to admit that this is the most frequent question that I am asked!

.

Right Question, Wrong Timing!

.

Now, there is nothing wrong with the question, in fact, it is a good idea to get referrals from others when you are looking to grow your team.  What I take issue with is the timing of the question.

.

You see, more often than not, this question is asked before the business owner has truly identified the specific work they need done.  This often leads to hiring the wrong person for their team!

.

It’s no wonder business owners become frustrated and start believing that there just aren’t any good people out there for their team!

.

In light of this, I thought it would be beneficial for me to share with you THE critical first step that so many business owners miss when they are looking to hire help and grow their team!

.

It is the  first step in my BOOST Power Team Hiring Blueprint — the exact step-by-step roadmap I use when hiring team members for my clients and for my very own team.

THE Critical First Step to Hiring:  Begin with the End in Mind

.

As many of you know, one of Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s key strategies in his book, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is to Begin with the End in Mind.   In my opinion, this is a vitally important step, the first step actually, when you are looking to hire people for your team.

.

What do I mean by that?.

Are You Throwing Money Out of the Window and Jeopardizing Your Success?

.

Time and time again, I see small business owners throw money out the window and waste their time and energy, because they hire team members without being specific on what they want done and who they need.

.

If as a business owner you are asking for referrals, interviewing and even hiring people for your team before having a clear understanding of the tasks, role and type of individual you require, you are jeopardizing not only your success but that of your new team member as well!  And, you are throwing money out of the window!

.

Before you post an add on Craig’s List or utter the words, “You are hired!” or even put out a message in social media or to your friends and colleagues asking them if they know of a good virtual assistant, personal assistant, marketing manager, copywriter, graphic designer, web programmer, or any other role, be sure to first be very clear on what you need to have done and the skills and expertise you require.

.

How exactly do you do that?  Do you wish you had a step-by-step roadmap outlining how to hire your Power Team members – your dream team?

.

I cover this in depth in my, “Power Team Hiring Secrets Home Study Program“; however let me give you a few steps to get you started:

.

1. Make a list of everything that is on your plate

2. Identify which of these you can outsource (delegate to someone else)

3. Group all similar tasks together

4. Next, prioritize the task groupings

5. Using your outsourcing budget and your prioritieze list as your guide, determine which tasks to outsource first

6. Identify the skills, knowledge and expertise required to complete these tasks

.

These steps are the stating point for determining who you need to help you in your business and what exactly you need them to be doing.  Now you can communicate your requirments to your network and see if they have anyone to recommend!
