Takeaways + Tactics
You need to build a team to build a business. In turn, you’ll stop being another cog in the machinery that is the real estate industry.
Build a team supportive of individual interests. By doing this, you’ll maximize the time and energy everyone spends on tasks.
Personality tests allow you to assign tasks to people based on what they are likely to be good at. Don’t waste time assigning tasks to someone who would never be able to complete them.
The key to having a productive and successful team lies in your ability to assemble one effectively. Pay attention to what people want to do, not what they say they can. By considering personality types, you’ll be able to identify whether someone is a salesperson or not. Building teams early on in your journey may be a risk, but if you do it the right way, you’ll have a group of dedicated people who grow alongside you and your business.
