Training a new team member correctly is one of the best ways that you can invest in your business. I fought having a team for the longest time in my own business because of self-limiting beliefs, and I know a lot of entrepreneurs who are hesitant to bring on a new team member for a number of reasons. Ultimately, hiring someone else will help you to gain back hours each day that are lost on the type of work that can be completed by someone else, and give you more time to focus on growing your business.
That being said, it’s important to devote time to correctly training the right person in order for them to be successful. The more time you invest out of the gate, the stronger of a team member they will become. They will become more capable, more independent, and more able to work towards an outcome over the course of time. The first 90 days are the most critical when you hire someone new so that you can really take time to teach them the correct processes and systems that they will be using to help the business run smoothly and efficiently. It’s all about building confidence, teaching critical thinking, continuous education, and getting them on the correct path so that they can succeed (and in turn help the business to thrive as well). If you’re someone who’s been considering hiring a new team member, this is the episode for you!
