Arguably the most difficult part of an entrepreneur’s job is managing him or herself; especially those starting a business by themselves. After all, there may be no one challenging them to reach higher, no one to defer to when the answers aren’t there, and no one to help in the transition from working in the business to working on the business.
So what is an entrepreneur to do? This is where teambuilding is critical. Not only is it essential to growing a business, it is integral to establishing a foundation for a sustained enterprise.
So what should be done? This post offers some helpful suggestions.
Decide your limitations – Focus on the most important tasks that can make or break your business and keep them within your purview. Ancillary tasks should be handled by staff members.
Identify and capitalize on growth opportunities – Knowing what can take your enterprise to the next level is one thing, making sure it becomes a reality is another. Both must work in concert in order for your business to be successful.
Establish and maintain a culture – This includes setting clear goals and responsibilities for the positions you establish. Make sure that the people you hire understand them and how their efforts work make the company go. This is what establishing and maintaining a culture is all about.
Build a network of advisors – As mentioned above, entrepreneurs struggle when they do not have people in their lives who challenge their thinking. A network of advisors can help in finding talent to join the organization and in helping an entrepreneur manage their responsibilities.
