It’s true for our bodies, and it’s true for our businesses. And since growth doesn’t happen without health, then business growth depends on the individual health of the team members. Having the right person in the right place is one of the biggest contributing factors to building a healthy, powerful team that can propel your business towards successful growth.

Recognizing the strengths and contributions of each person allows you to identify the most strategic place for them. Giving people the space to work according to their passions and skills gives them the space to thrive. And thriving individuals are what create a thriving business. Some of our favorite assessment tools include StrengthsFinders2.0 and The Core Values Index.

Both of these tests can be very valuable on an individual level to understand what drives team members and how they apply their strengths in the workplace. On a professional level, these kinds of tools can help teams assess if they have people “playing the right position” on the team. As a business owner, if you truly understand your people’s values and strengths, you can restructure roles and reassigns tasks in a way that plays to those strengths instead of against them.

Sometimes, bringing in an outside business coach or consultant can also help you identify your team’s strengths, as well as areas that could be improved on. Business strategies can be developed and then implemented, resulting in better alignment for you and your company.

In the process of adding new team members and assigning new responsibilities, it’s vital that you don’t settle for less than the right fit. As a small business, it can be easy to feel like you lack the resources to be “picky.” You don’t have the recruiting capabilities, you don’t have the staffing capacity, you don’t have the reach to attract the sort of employment interest that gives you a variety of options. That may be true, but it doesn’t justify matching the wrong person with the wrong job. It’s worth it in the long run to wait and make sure it’s a good fit, before you commit to a temporary solution that will hinder or even undermine your growth.

Developing a team is all about recognizing your resources. Partnering with another business who compliments your services and adds value to what you offer is an incredible way to develop your team, and is a strategy we strongly believe in at Propel. This article goes more in-depth on tips for team building.
