Building the team of people who can effectively execute the company strategy and reach the desired objectives is no small feat, no matter what the size of the organization. The leadership challenge for business owners and executives is to build a solid team that can work together collaboratively, build on strengths rather than focus on improving deficiencies, and achieve clear measurable results quickly.
This context in which this can occur is dictated by four factors.
- First is a clear and focused business strategy.
- Second, there will be an emphasis on implementation of the strategy
- Third, the organizational culture must be performance based
- Fourth, the organizational structure will be more flat than hierarchal in nature.
Attention on these four elements ensures the ability to be proactively responsive to the forces of the marketplace.
Growing a business always rests on more than the efforts of one or two people. The business owner will need to include adding to staff for expansion in order to service customers. Failing to add the right members to the team, and not utilizing them to the best of their abilities once they are on board are among the pitfalls to avoid.
As coaches the most common team complaints we hear relate to performance, loyalties and personalities. Many small businesses fall into the trap of running the business like a family, where paternalism rules, and relationships become like those of parents and children. Employees don't grow and mature, and everyone is trapped.
This is the first hurdle that must be overcome. Employers must shift from babysitting to creating a culture of collaboration and holding people accountable for results. For many business owners and executives who have functioned very well in hierarchal, self-oriented business models that prevail, this represents a profound change in their way of thinking and operating.
Instead of presiding over the status quo and seeking predictable results, they must articulate a new vision and create shared, understood goals that lead to creative entrepreneurial results. Rather than relying on traditional organizational structures, they must find new patterns of relationships, networks and interactions. Equating success with knowing must shift to an attitude of learning and questioning. they must learn to encourage inquiry and sharpen their listening skills, instead of listening reactively. The culture of the organization that works collaboratively empowers people on the job, acknowledges their talents and abilities, and provides an environment where high performance can flourish.
Only once a commitment has been made to begin creating the proper environment for a team to work can the real work of building a solid business team begin.
