One of the best things you can do to succeed in business is have other people working with you.
You don’t necessarily need a staff of dozens, hundreds, or thousands. All you really need is a group of people able and willing to share your duties.
Your company’s business teams can serve as a practical role in keeping you from being overwhelmed and working around the clock.
Business teams where everyone has different skill sets can also make it easier for you to focus on the areas that you perform well at. This also allows other team members to focus on the tasks that they have higher strengths in.
This way, everyone can be assigned to an area they are especially proficient at, rather than one person trying to do everything and spreading themselves too thin.
For instance, in the early days of a company, one or two people may have pushed themselves to take care of the marketing, fulfill the orders, create the design, coordinate payroll and the accounting, payroll and more. Perhaps the early employees didn’t necessarily want to do all of those things as a job, but all of these tasks had to be done by someone, and no one else was around.
In some cases, those initial efforts led to a larger workforce with more business teams, so enough people can focus on each of these areas.
Developing a successful team can also include:
Better opportunities for brainstorming. The more people around, the more creative solutions can be generated.
Better focus. One person alone may be too distracted for good strategic thinking but a whole group can look toward the future together.
Less opportunities for the less fun stuff. More bodies might mean a larger rotation for some of the less pleasant tasks that still need to be done, like loading or unloading the company break room dishwasher.
More input for decisions. Sole proprietors may sometimes feel alone during challenging times. But more people mean more ability to get opinions on different directions when a decision is required.
