Effective entrepreneurs develop processes. They find the best practices, the right way for something to be done, and consolidate those practices into a standard operating procedure. They do this to ensure consistently effective performance that provides the desired result, over and over again.

I would bet that the best general manager out there has a process. It probably starts with an end of season assessment, tallying deliverables and identifying what they need for next season. They probably write it up and send it out to their scouts to shortlist only acceptable players. Maybe they have set meetings with player’s agents, a “sale” they do to convince top talent to come to their city. Maybe they even utilize their current players to help land other top talent.

Do you have a tried and tested process for recruiting? If the outcome of your recruiting efforts influences so much in your business, what’s stopping you from developing a routine way of delivering consistently exceptional results?

It comes back to focus again. Focus means taking the time to ensure you use your effort effectively. That you have all the steps in place and you go through them because they work. You wouldn’t build a house or do a renovation without a job flow process – so why would you recruit without one? The third key, then, is having a standard operating procedure for attracting top talent that is tried and tested to deliver results. And the thing is, top talent will be attracted by the professionalism of the process itself.

All our material is designed and built specifically for trades entrepreneurs, so you can get out there and be focused on building your championship team.

Here’s to your success!
