Learn to evaluate and select people
While being a solo-preneur can work out for the early stage of a venture, you are better off finding a team of people to work with you. Even going from a founding team to employees bring very new challenges, such as culture and on-boarding processes. Learn how to the true characteristics of a candidate and understand if they are a good fit.
Identify needs and opportunities for hires
Hires result from specific needs that arise in your company. Be conscious about the existing people structure and identify what each one is best at, what he does not like doing and where nobody is doing something that should be done. Develop a sustainable strategy for gradual adjustments in your team. Know how to recognize opportunities and when is it worth it to make use of them.
Be prepared for team conflicts
Many teams fail because of internal conflicts. It’s just part of being a founder. One day you love them and others you just want to be left alone. Founding a company is often compare to a marriage. Be prepared for conflicts, recognize them, develop strategies to work around them or talk about them. Maybe even make them work in your favor.
