One of the greatest feelings as a business owner is quite possibly the day you can hire team members to help grow your dream.

But bringing a new dream team up to speed can add unforeseen stress and complexity. Subtle factors such as personality, cultural diversity and current work or life experience can all have a major impact on the success of your team…
So how can you ensure your team’s a success? For starters, begin with solid team building.
“But there’s only a few of us in my company!” you say… I hear you, but don’t let the numbers fool you.

A team can be as small as just you and a partner or involve numerous people. Small business owners are putting an increasing emphasis on team building activities to improve productivity, increase motivation, foster problem solving and encourage creativity — and with outstanding results.
