Week 37 Focus – Building Your Team
Focus Question: What are the roles that are going to help you as a business? What are the roles that are non-negotiable? What else is going to help your team?
There are many elements which make teams work. We often call this team effectiveness. From leveraging your people’s strengths to the Six Factors, team development is process which occurs over time. Many of the topics we explored earlier in this series (i.e. values, strengths, vision) can also be applied to your team. Take a look back at some of the earlier sessions.
We know that teams excel when they have clarity around both the results they are working on, in addition to having strong relationships. In future weeks we will be exploring additional areas.
As a starting point, consider:
Return to your vision and think about WHO you need to help you grow your business.
On an immediate level, make a list of all the things you have been involved with recently or have on your list. Are there any things which could be done by others?
Connection to the Workbook and Planner
Check out the Time Management and Personal Productivity sections. These will be useful in exploring what tasks you are doing and where they are in terms of urgency and importance. As your business grows you will want to consider what tasks could be delegated to others. This will be a signal of the types of work which could be handed over to part-time or full-time staff.
Use the chart connected to the 4D model to capture the tasks required by others. This can be found on page 120 of the Coaching Business Builder and page 122 of PlanDoTrack.
