Effective Ways to Build A Management Team

Business owners cannot do everything on their own; they need the help of key people. For instance, a proficient management team is a must for making a business successful. How do you go about building the right management team? Here is the method to know it…

There are at least three major steps involved,

1) Determine the members of the management team
2) Recruit the team members
3) Develop the management team

1) Determine the members of the management team

In determining the team members, you need to examine the current state of your firm first. Through this, you will know who should comprise your management team. Tap the help of the board of advisors or the consultant, if you have one.

Create an organizational chart with all the departments, teams and staff that you need. Label them accordingly. The practice helps in identifying any gaps in leadership.

While constructing the chart, leave some spaces empty. These spaces are for future growth. Who knows? You might need to hire an HR Director and Recruitment Officer in the next six months.

Ask for professional help. Sometimes, it is difficult to figure out what you need because you are the boss. Listen to other equally interested people like your business partners for expert advice.

2) Recruit the team members

Promote internally. Consider those incumbents with leadership potentials. Talk to some of your well-performing employees to discuss their overall vision for the company. You will have a good grasp of their levels of interest on career growth through this.

After exhausting the organizational members, look elsewhere in your industry. Prioritize capabilities, skills, experiences and characters. Go to professional networking activities. Attend industry events.

Don’t underestimate the power of technology in landing you to the perfect candidate. LinkedIn is an ideal source of talented individuals.

Again, don’t hesitate to get professional help. Commission a professional headhunter to fill in the vacancies. The list from professional recruiters is already filtered thus your business can get the best among the rest.

3) Develop the management team

After assembling the management team, set up meetings. Meet with the managers individually and as one group. Explain expectations particularly about their roles and responsibilities. It is better to clarify this on the first meeting to avoid confusion later in the process.

Delegate the right tasks to the right people. As such, you can now give up some tasks that you need to manage because no one else can do it.

Develop a strategic plan that reflects the day-to-day operation and the long-term projection. Take advantage of the talent. While you might have devised your company’s vision, mission, goals, objectives and values, now is the perfect time to revise. Call on these managers to contribute.

Give the management team the required authority. Managers can only perform well regardless of the amount of responsibilities with the right amount of authority. After all, they need to delegate tasks to the staff further. 
Hiring the wrong ones can have serious consequences for your business. That’s not what you want in the first place. Thereby, be diligent enough to look for the right people to include in your management team.
