Tips for COOs – Tip #5: Hiring

Feb 14, 2018 | 0 comments

Hiring is a vital part of ensuring the success of your company, and hiring the right people for your team will make a huge difference.

In order to ensure that you are hiring the right executive team – that will make your Vivid Vision come true – is to ensure that you’re building a team that includes experts from each of the functional areas.

First of all, it’s essential that your team can work well together – instead of each team member focusing on their individual silos. Real team players are solid in their functional areas (independently), but also have the ability to come together as a group and make tremendous progress. These team members are going to be working as the first layer team – which is the most important team.

Secondly, you need to make sure that people you are hiring have actually done the work before. Not someone who has practiced “the theory” – but people that have been down in the trenches actually getting the job done. To make sure that you’re looking for the right people it is crucial that you take a look at what is on each team members plate for the next 12 months – and then when recruiting you look at their work history, call references, and ask around to make sure that they have actually done the things you have on your list.

Doing these things will ensure that you hire, and work with, an A-Level team.
