Welcome to the open Mavericks business Friday. This week our main themes will be:
1: How to find and hire a fantastic team of A-players (both partners and personnel) for your new business.
2: How to be a great manager to a team of A players
In this high octane session we are going to show you some of the most important entrepreneur trade secrets out there: How to gather a dream team for your start-up! It is without a doubt one of the most important aspects of your business. Because a good team generally gets to good results eventually.
In this session we’ll be examining the best strategies to attract highly skilled people to your team and conquer some of the important hurdles that can bedevil the hiring policy of a start-up like: “Low or no cash-flow yet” and “Hiring your very first employee at a high level without having anything to show for your business yet”.
As soon as your team transforms from a one-man show into a more-than-one-man show the entire dynamic of your fledgeling business will change, necessitating the need for management and leadership. Usually this will be you! in this session we’ll closely examine this part of being an entrepreneur exposing some of the hidden pitfalls and showing you many time tested strategies for being a successful start-up manager.
Be prepared to learn some things you didn’t know, you didn’t know.
As always The Mavericks will open the door at 9:30 and start the day at 10:00 sharp. Please respect yourself and your fellow Mavericks by being early or on-time. We all really appreciate it and it starts our day powerfully. Also be ready to implement throughout the day.
We always start with a short Q&A where each participant gets to share who they are, why they are at Mavericks and what knowledge they seek. After that the Mavericks will teach for several hours (often until about 14:00 with several breaks in between). After the class there will be plenty of time to work one-on-one with the Mavericks on your own project.
