Building the perfect team of workers is a little like baking a cake. If you follow the right steps, you have a recipe for success. In his article, Andrew Filev explains the recipe for a dream team of workers. The first step is to grab all the right ingredients. This means hiring all the right people. However, just like when baking, don’t be afraid to tweak your original shopping list. You never know when an unexpected addition might just be the icing on the cake.
When you finally start cooking, or putting your team to work, remember that even the best ingredients are useless without the guiding hands of the chef. Watch the oven closely, but don’t poke and proud the cake until it’s flat. Once you mix together your new team, make sure they have a clear idea of the final product. Then, let your freshly stirred ingredients rise to the occasion. Stay nearby to ensure the productive simmer doesn’t boil over, but don’t hover in the kitchen. After a bit of waiting, you may just have the perfect product to enjoy. Bon appetite!
