Creating good employees. Part 5 

Creating the dream team. 

Do not forget. The only way people’s noses will not be out of joint when hiring new team members is when there is a strong team. A good team will recognize that they need a new associate or an upgrade to the next level.  

This can be done internally if the talent is there. If more sales, social media and marketing are needed because your team cannot keep up, or this is a new role, you need to make sure you fill the position.  

The team needs to know that it is not “that” they are not doing a good job. They need to know that social media for example is a way to make the company more visible to the public or other businesses. This needs to be expressed clearly when your ass is getting kicked by your competition online or in e-commerce. 

Pivoting. 

Maybe your company needs a very quick point to pivot and turn on. Take one of your staff that does not know much about social media but has the product knowledge to guide a new member. Let them express what is lacking to quickly launch an attack on social media with a certain budget in mind. 

Bringing on new members can only be done with an open willing mind. One cannot take on a role with a closed, ignorant careless attitude. This will fail from step one and such ventures need to be monitored so the benefit is seen by all.  

Ultimately the boss/leader/CEO or the owner rules but, they need to see the team from a helicopter view.   

The big picture. 

Once the players are on the pitch they need to know that each member has support and that calling out for a pass or a time out is ok. Even when the team is playing, a huddle can be called to make sure this is the correct direction. Assess the competition, do a double check.   

Maybe the ship needs to be steered to the left or the right due to recent market, social or economic conditions. A bad decision is better than no decision. Any decision can be corrected and yes, it may cost money now but save money down the road.  

What is really needed? 

A good coach is what’s needed. The bottom line is that a fish stinks from the head down. If the head stinks or the company is on the wrong path it will rarely succeed.  

It is the job of the team to also report and communicate openly, honestly and respectfully when the direction seems to be off. Everyone should be able to ask why openly. Not with backlash and anger but with curiosity and concern. Why are we spending funds here when we are already spending it there. Why are we retreating when we could be attacking?  

A good boss depends on their team and a good team depends on their coach. Establishing this balance is not easy. Creating the perfect team may never happen. However, fielding the best team you are capable of and coaching them can happen.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
