Power Talk Friday: Shelli Warren: Recognizing That Your Small Business Brings Value to the Right Employee

Episode 980 of A Well-Designed Business®

Today With Shelli Warren

Today, on A Well-Designed Business, I am joined by Shelli Warren, distinguished Women’s Leadership Advisor, and the host of the Stacking Your Team podcast. Do you believe the misconception that success is only attached to working for a corporation? If so, you may have little faith in hiring the right team, because as you will hear from Shelli, you have much to offer the right person in the form of a career.

Pick It Apart:

[6:07] Shelli shares her philosophy that her clients should understand that they have value and can provide valuable careers for employees.

[12:28] Before you even post a position, get clear on their job responsibilities.

[16:01] When and how to build a leadership team.

[20:08] How to guide someone towards making desirable decisions and being accountable.

[27:54] Realizing that you may have to fire people because the pace of your business has changed and you need to bring in new hires.

[48:25] When a business owner is ready to sell their business, many times it is an employee who buys it.
