Having the right people is fundamental to achieving team goals. As a manager the first task is often one of the most fundamental to the success of your team in reaching its targets: picking the right team members...
If there are certain skills
that are crucial to your team’s success, you should ensure that there are other team members who can pick up their tasks and responsibilities should a problem arise.
Doubling up on the most
important skills is a great way to ensure that your team can be ﬂexible should some of the work need to be reallocated in the event of a team member leaving or requiring additional support in their tasks.
While it is vital to
pick the people with the right skills and experience, you should also look for the people who have a passion for the work they will be doing and are motivated by the experience that joining your team will give them.
Your team can fail if
its members lose interest, or leave at a crucial time; for this reason you should hire the people who show enthusiasm from the start and who are most likely to see the team’s goals through to completion.
