When you’ve got a strong, established team, how do you continue to grow and take the team to the next level?

Take a look at what you’re currently outsourcing, writing for example.  Imagine the difference that skill set would make if you could bring it in house with the right person.

If a well balanced team fits together like the stripes on a beach ball, which color are you missing?

Decide what skills would make the most difference to your team and company, and then set out to hire the “superstar color” that has those skills and more.

To ensure a good fit with your successful group dynamic, consider having your team and top candidates take a personality assessment.  It is an unbiased way to single out the candidate who will fit best with your group.

Bringing in a superstar who complements the existing skills of your team can make your capabilities grow exponentially.
