Going out on your own and starting your own business is by no means an easy feat, but for the right person, it can be the challenge of a lifetime. However, if you want your business to grow, you will need so much more than just a great idea and enthusiasm: you will also need people and management skills.

Think you've got what it takes to be an entrepreneur and build a team culture? This is more important than ever at this time of year - with staff and employees looking forward to celebratory Christmas party events. Keep reading to find out more on how you can keep your business growing this winter without forgetting to enjoy the holidays, too.

Regardless of  aspirations, all new business ventures have to start somewhere; even Facebook started with one person and a laptop - but that doesn't mean it will always be this way. With the right attitude and hard work, you too can take your business to dizzy new heights.

"Be the change you want to see"

Characteristics of a great entrepreneur include passion, innovation, taking risks, positivity and being a pioneer for change. Having a vision you can share with a like-minded team is the best way to make your dream come true, but how do you find and nurture your team?

Looking after your staff and employees is more important than ever in the lead up to Christmas and the holiday season. This time of year is always focused on the importance of family and spending quality time with loved ones.

For a business just starting out, it can also be one of the busiest periods of the year. In fact, the majority of businesses within retail and sales make the majority of their annual turnover in the last 8-12 weeks of the year - so how do you balance the two? With the right team.

From the Ground Up

As a business owner, you are expected to drive your company forward and motivate others with your passion and enthusiasm. You will also need to set goals and expectations for the business, and the staff, too. Find a team that complements your vision, your dream, your business.

  • Hire the right person, not the first person. Always ask about an individual's talents and passions in life, as well as employment history
  • Build a team that is adaptive to change - in the ever-evolving market, the need to think fast in business means your staff also need to be multi-faceted within their roles
  • Look for employees that work well together, and gel as a team. Know their strengths and weaknesses to ensure your offering is complete
  • Choose candidates based on their personality as well as experience. How a new recruit fits in with your existing staff is important

Add some Christmas Cheer

With the right team on hand, your business will soon go from strength to strength. But, with the right team comes the responsibility of ensuring they are happy and engaged in their roles. During the next few months, as we approach Christmas and the New Year sales, this is as important as ever.

Team building is an all-year round necessity that ensures your business is productive and working in the way you need it to. Incorporate this into Christmas party events for a much needed social event where staff can blow off steam from the stresses of this busy period, and also build and develop important personal relationships with their colleagues and peers.
