Today is part 2 of the 2 part mini series I’ve put together on how to hire and train your first, or next team member. If you missed Episode 66 which was Part 1: How To Hire Your First Team Member then I highly recommend you go and listen to that episode too because in it I walk you through how to determine what position you are hiring for and outline some critical tips to think about when hiring your first or next team member.

Ok, so you’ve hired the team member and now what? How do you train them? How do you work with them? How do you get them to do the things you want them to do like you do it?

I outline some fabulous suggestions for you on how to train an employee. These all stem from my own experience of building my own team and making lots of mistakes in the process. The good news is that you get to benefit from my years of making mistakes and will hopefully get to avoid some of them because you’re listening to this podcast episode. Yay you!

In This Episode I Share…

  • Some really important truths – CEO to CEO
  • The shift you MUST make in your mindset, energy and behavior so that you can successfully grow your team
  • What a dedicated team member onboarding process looks like and how to design it (including strategies we use every time we add a new team member to Team LK)
  • Why regularly scheduled meetings are absolutely necessary and what the agenda looks like for each meeting that I have with my team
  • How to divide tasks into daily, weekly and monthly tasks and how to figure out which is which!
  • The difference between tasks and project work (and how to balance your team member’s time spent on both categories of work)
  • How to create and outline a project plan
  • Why I am OBSESSED with “process” (even though it sometimes drives my team crazy)
  • The MOST important thing you need to do in order to build and grow a kickass team (hint: it involves not taking yourself too seriously)
