Business owners and small business managers can easily fall prey to thinking that hiring the right employees is the end of the job. They’ve done their due diligence, went through interviews, got a feel for potential new hires, checked references, and hired who the felt was right. So, that’s it, right? Wrong. Hiring employees, even great employees, is only the first step in the long and challenging process of creating a great small business team.
Once you hire employees and they begin working for you and with you, then you really get a sense of who they are, how they react to working with you and your clientele, and start seeing their strengths at play.

Below is a comprehensive list of character strengths, pay attention to your employees in action and make note of their strengths as individuals and as a group. Now, begin the process of shaping this group into the winning team who will take your small business to the next level!
