Have you ever noticed how a country takes care to build a strong and competent army before it enters into a war. It does so because it knows that if the country has to win the war it has to have a strong competent army of people who can win the battle for the country. The same goes for a company if you need to be sure of success in your business then surround yourself with some great and competent people. Perhaps the most untapped and expensive resource of a company is its people. If you have the capability of unlocking the most out of the average worker in your business then be sure that you are on your way to success.
Most entrepreneurs think that they are brilliant at every thing and they try to manage every thing. No one is perfect in all areas and to think that way its one of the surest way to disaster. Successful entrepreneurs know that however intelligent and talented they might be, there are always areas where they need experts. Experts who can build teams and take out the best from their teams. For you to become successful, you have to find, recruit and empower others who have talents that you don’t have. Your job as a leader it to find, attract and develop other leaders. And if you do that your business will grow and if you don’t, it won’t. You need just to be a team leader. As long as all key decisions of the company completely depend on you, the company can’t increase its scale as much as it deserves. And the company that can’t scale and grow won’t last as long or make you as rich as one that does. Just go and hire people who buy your vision as much as you do. These are the people with the energy to make things happen for their sake not just yours. And after finding such people give them a free hand. Let them make their own plans and strategies. Just keep a watch on their results. So much said and done let’s try to find how to look for these great players.
