Learn to Build a High Caliber Team

Everything about the success of your business starts with your ability to attract and retain a high caliber team.    This is the most important skill you can develop, period.

The team builds out the strategy, controls the cash and helps the business win.  A strong team builds this stuff out in a strong way, a weak team builds the business to be weak.

Attracting and retaining people that are better than you is the cornerstone of your personal success.  To do this, you must:

  1. Have a strong, clear, compelling purpose as a business
  2. Have clear core values that attract like-minded people
  3. Build a reputation for furthering the personal and career goals of your team members
  4. Be asking around and looking for talented people everywhere you go
  5. Build your leadership skills. 10’s don’t want to work for 6’s!
