We talked so long last week about how to hire a great team, that we split the discussion into two parts. Join us for the second half of our discussion on how to hire the right team of employees for your business …
If you’ve already read the book, She’s On Her Toes, you’ll remember the definition of a fitness business, but let’s just refresh:
“A fitness business is a commercial, profitable enterprise that can be run without you so you can be a role model in the health and fitness community you are creating.”
To get your business to run without you, you’ll have to be a true leader and create the vision, mission and culture for your employees to follow.
Taking the time to write your business Vision, Mission and Culture statements is the most valuable process you can complete when it comes to building a team because it establishes clear parameters for who you want to hire. If a candidate you interview doesn’t agree with any part of your Vision, Mission and Culture statements, then they aren’t a good fit for your business.
It’s great to talk about why it’s important to hire a great team … but … how do you actually go about hiring these amazing individuals?
Did you know I have an online course, How to Hire A Rock Star Team? Yep! I do!
The course is a comprehensive, step-by-step plan to create your own hiring process. There are 15 lessons complete with videos, audio lessons, and worksheets. This is the exact same process that I went through to create my own hiring process, so I know it works. It’s the exact same process that I use today when I’m looking to interview or add a new member to my team.
In the course, you’ll learn how to create an environment that attracts only the RIGHT employees to work in your business. You’ll also create a complete hiring process including how to:
- Write an exciting job description
- Post a killer advertisement
- Conduct the perfect interview
- Ask the right interview questions
I talk non-stop about how hiring the best team is literally THE MOST IMPORTANT THING you can do for your business. It is!
In fitness (and most membership-based businesses), you can’t promote yourself to a successful business. Meaning, even if you had the most awesome deal or promotion, it will be a total flop, if you don’t have the right team to sell and deliver an incredible experience to your prospective clients.
It’s all about the experience! Who offers the best experience? The best employees! That’s right, people provide the best experience. Not promotions!
And how are you, the over-worked and over-whelmed small business owner supposed to do it all?! You can’t. This is why it’s so important to hire the right team to help you out.
While the course is designed for fitness studio owners, the same principles apply to any small business owner and even some large business owners.
Be sure to check out the amazing bonus materials … they might just be better than the course itself! And … I also have a list of THE BEST interview questions to ask to hire the right employee. There are some questions that I use specifically to hire for my fitness studios.
