3 Simple Steps to Attracting A-Players, Part 2 of 2

The key to taking our life back from our business is to have a team of A-players, and one of the greatest challenges that we entrepreneurs experience is finding the A-players that are right for our team and that we can trust, especially while we’re away from our business.

In Part One of this series, Dr. Sabrina discussed the psychology of A-players, team members who are known to be resourceful and motivated and who believe in your vision.

In today’s episode, Dr. Sabrina reveals the three simple steps you can take now to attract A-players to your team so that you can move your business in the direction of not having to rely on you.

This content is based on Dr. Sabrina’s book, How to Hire the Best: The Entrepreneur's Ultimate Guide to Attracting Top-Performing Team Members, and is a companion book to her newly-released book, The 4 Week Vacation, which is now available on Amazon!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

  • Dr. Sabrina details the three simple steps to attract A-players to your team:
    • Know your vision and know the sweet spot of your business before you hire.
    • Define what an A-player looks like in the role for which you need them.
    • Become an employer of choice.
  • The most important quality of an A-player is resourcefulness.
  • Immutable laws are your core values – how you show up and do life.
  • Here are two key questions to help you identify your core values:
    • What has ticked you off lately?
    • What has made you proud lately?
  • Caution: Immutable laws are different than aspirational values.
  • What is the most important result you need from your team member? How does it relate to the sweet spot in the business? How does it drive profitability in the business? What personality strengths are needed to deliver this one result exceptionally well, day in and day out?
  • Build a company culture that is so attractive to A-players that they can’t resist wanting to work for you!

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
