Episode 114. Express Tip #57: The Secret to Effective Hiring

Annette Walter

August 18, 2021

Do you have a set, consistent hiring process in your business that you follow every single time you need to make a hire? 

Are you even ready to hire? Do you know what to do to find the right candidate for your business? How do you know who is the right person? 

I don’t mean to nag you with these many questions, but I do want you to do it the right way. 

Maybe you do have a process but it’s more reactive, you tend to get off the rails from that process, and scattered around it. And I’m not just talking about finding the candidates and interviewing them. The hiring process starts months before you actually interview the candidates or put up the job posting. 

Hiring should always be happening in your business, it should be continuous. I call it team development because this is how we make our companies grow. When our team grows, when we add people, when we have people in the right seats on the right bus, that’s when companies really scale. 

It’s not about finding somebody, falling in love with them, bringing them into an organization when you’re not ready, and then that person ends up failing and you end up feeling terrible. 

I’ve seen that cycle before. I’m sure you have been in that cycle before, but that’s not what this is about, lets break that cycle. This is about your team development and your hiring process BEFORE you even go out to the market to find the right people to bring into your organization. 

So now I really want you to try and answer these questions before you determine a new hire. 

  • How do you know it’s time for a new hire?
  • What do you need to do when you’re ready for that new hire?
  • Who is the right person you need?
  • What are the next steps once you find the right person?

If you have the answer to all four of those questions, kudos to you! Keep it up and continue to use your process. Instead, if you’re finding it difficult to know the answer to a few of them, I have a really great tool that I not only use for my business, but I help my coaching clients with it when they need to add a new hire to their business. I can send it to you and help you with it if you want to. Please DM me, or reach out to me at yourock@ievolveconsulting.com

This tool, combined with my upcoming product, analyzes what’s getting done and what’s not getting done in your business, and specifically recognizes the revenue-producing items that are not happening in your business as the best place to start when you need to determine a new hire in your organization. 

This is a big topic that entrepreneurs can easily get wrong, so make sure you reach out, no strings attached! Schedule a one-to-one with me, tell me all about your process and let me help you tweak it over the phone, point you in the right direction,  and give you the right resources you need. 

Also, check out my other programs and groups. We are always learning, evolving, and processing these topics with other entrepreneurs. That’s what this community is all about and I’d love for you to join us.

Take care, entrepreneur. I am so happy you are here. Thank you for being so amazing. Keep up the great work, you are rocking it. 

Don’t do this journey alone. It is very important to surround yourself with a community of like-minded entrepreneurs.

I’m grateful for this community and our most powerful platform, The Entrepreneur Evolution Empowerment Group. A group of rockstars entrepreneurs that are on the way to five million and 10 million dollars in revenue. We have accountability bi-weekly meetings where we go through topics of leadership, development, and tons of resources. These entrepreneurs are leaders and still growing, and I’m very proud of them.
