Building World Class Teams

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed. It is the only thing that ever has.”
–Margaret Mead

Building a world class team requires hiring and retaining Very Talented People (VTP’s). I recently gave a presentation that talked about finding, recruiting and retaining these elite performers on your team.

Hiring and retaining VTP’s requires different approaches:

  • Slow to hire, quick to fire
  • The magic of small wins
  • Have fun and celebrate your victories
  • Manage results, not activities
  • Inspire people towards a greater cause
  • Boldly recognize extraordinary contributions

Very talented people have unique needs – if you are prepared to meet those needs, you will create a team that can transform your organization and industry.

To see the entire presentation, you can down load it at Building a World Class Team or view it on SlideShare.
