Building and maintaining a successful team


As a business owner when you look around physically or virtually and see the team who have helped get through to this point.  So, what are the elements that lead us to have a successful team, a team that supported each other through the highs and the lows and still brought about amazing results?

Some points to consider for now and the future:


  • Recruit to the values – get the right people from the start


  • Provide direction and clarity – get people focused on doing the right thing, at the right time


  • Keep communication lines open


  • Create a common goal and celebrate wins collectively


  • Take time to understand people’s strengths and play to those strengths


  • Help people to understand everyone’s contribution


  • Be supportive and not judgmental when things don’t go to plan


  • Have regular honest conversations


  • Value the importance of connection – allowing for social interaction and to build trust


  • Take the time, time to notice and time to check in with people


  • Let them know what you value about them as a team member


  • Have fun together

If you have an accountant, they should be your first stop for business advice. If you don’t have an accountant or they can’t help, BuBul has a wide range of experts available. For more advice why not contact our expert* Juan on LinkedIn?

*We’ve picked experts we know and trust who are good at what they do. All of them will give you at least an extra 30 minutes free advice if you contact them and would then charge their normal prices. They don’t pay to be on BuBul and don’t give us any money from anything they earn as an expert.
