Business success is often determined by the team you surround yourself with. On today’s episode Andy is joined by Omar Zehom, host of the hugely popular podcast the $100MBA. As a world-class business educator and entrepreneur, Omar shares his best tips for building a great team.

Key Hiring Tips:

  1. Identify the exact role you are hiring for and ALL of their responsibilities
    1. Think abstractly and what do you actually NEED
    2. Asking yourself what responsibilities you let go and which ones you can’t
  2. When interviewing possible team members
    1. Hire based on evidence...not just a gut feeling
    2. Imagine you are hiring for someone else and you will pay a penalty if they don’t work out
    3. Ask followup questions that require evidence
