Tip 1 – Look Outside

When assembling a team to take your business to the next level, don’t skip over those from outside your industry. A newcomer may need extra help with steps of service or picking up jargon, but they can bring an outsiders point of view into the inside. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Tip 2 – Evaluate Early

Evaluate early! First impressions say a lot about someone. If an employee is slacking off one week into the job, don’t think they will pick up the pace in a few more days – because that could turn into months of waiting.

Tip 3 -Pick a Partner

Pick a partner. Befriending someone in the same position will teach you more than a supervisor can. Upper level management can be intimidating, so it’s good to have an ally who can answer questions and address concerns without having to go through the chain of command.
