The firm believes that the key to sales success stems from a healthy team environment with clear lines of authority but also a sense of equality among each of the team members. The Tailored Group prides itself on the ability to promote a healthy and confident team environment and believe its combination of rigorous training and regular team nights is behind its unparalleled success in 2017. The firm is now confident that it is leading the sales and marketing industry with its team building techniques and this week has released critical tips on forging the perfect team.
The Tailored Group understand that a vast majority of young professionals want to own their own business but often have limited funds at the start of their journey. With this in mind, the company argue that entrepreneurs cannot face this alone and should not be asking if they need to build a team (which they must) but rather how to make the right team.
The firm has released its top 3 tips on forging the perfect team. They are as follows:
1) Ask yourself what skills you lack and find people to help work on those aspects of the business.
The Tailored Group want to point out the common mistakes that small business owners make: that they have the skills to do everything on their own. No one is perfect, and the firm wants young professionals to be honest with themselves on the skills they lack and the team members they will need to address every aspect of business.
2) Find people who are passionate about your idea
When sifting through potential business candidates, young professionals need to look for those who are passionate about their beliefs. If they hire individuals who are in it for personal gain rather than the more significant ideas that are at the center of the business, then the firm is confident that their team will not efficiently gel.
3) Do not go into business with your close friends
Finally, The Tailored Group believe that a company needs to remain as professional as it possibly can be. There is always time for socializing after work, but someone’s social life should not invade their business environment. The firm is quick to point out the common problem young professionals make is hiring their friends. If their social life influences them, they may overlook if that specific individual has the skills they need to create the perfect team.
The Tailored Group is fixated on becoming an industry leader in team building and hopes the three tips included in this guide will shape both the young entrepreneurs in its own firm and outside the industry. It looks forward to building on its role as an educator within the industry and hope to continue its efforts on forming the next generation of young professionals.
