How to: Build a great team for your small business! Pt. 2

May 31, 2024


Welcome to our Weekly Digest! 🚀

For today's read, we'll continue with part 2 of "How to build a great team for your small business"!

Let's take a look at what Xero has to say about building a team!

"Value your team and show it!

  • Show them you care: Learn about things like their family, personal life or hobbies.

  • Focus on personal growth: Think about enhancing your employees' skill-sets and management skills. Know their career goals and help them get there.

  • Invest in your employees: Give them the support and tools they need to be successful. This could include things like a healthy working environment, a supportive team or the right software or technical equipment.

  • Celebrate the little victories: Reward every success, no matter how small it might seem. The goodwill generated will pay you back many times over.

  • Be positive and stay positive: Don't lose your cool or lose control, as that will set a bad impression and affect morale.

Have team-building exercises!

Small businesses are often fast-paced environments. That means you need to get your team working together quickly.

This one's simple, team-building exercises can help build rapport!

Here are some fun ideas for your team:

  • Scavenger hunts - Team members try to find items around the office with clues!

  • Office trivia - Teams compete against each other to answer questions on different themes!

  • Two truths and a lie - Team members share three statements about themselves, two are true and one is a lie. Other team members guess which is the lie!

  • Human knot - Team members have to untangle themselves within a time limit!

  • Escape room - Team members must find for clues and solve puzzles to escape within a time limit. This activity requires communication and teamwork!

Use your people skills to build your team

For your team to thrive you must be approachable, friendly, authoritative and responsible. In other words, a good manager and leader.

You may need training to help you become a better manager and there's no shame in that. Running a business is a learning process – and just like your employees, you can learn and improve.

After all, the better you are at managing people, the better your team will perform and the faster your business will grow."
