A-Player Problems: How to Attract Them, Train Them, and Keep Them – Episode 198


A-Player Problems: How to Attract Them, Train Them, and Keep Them

Many Profit Designers like you are struggling to hire, grow, and retain their best team members. You are not alone! Business owners are in a desperate state to hire the quality help that they need. The COVID pandemic has plunged us into a never-ending cycle of business owners having to step in and do more because of the depleted team—and increased customer dissatisfaction due to the level of service they are receiving. Can you resonate? Let me help! Solving this problem for small business owners has been my primary focus for many years. Let’s talk about solutions to help your business and your life!

You CAN hire A-players and build a quality team for your business. Don’t be like I once was: buying into the limiting mindset and making excuses for why I couldn’t hire A-players. I’ve done the research and discovered the characteristics of A-players that align with a business owner’s core values. Join me now for more!

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

Show Highlights:
  • Hear my story of how hiring A-players became my focus!
  • Characteristics of A-players: what they see, what they want, and the common thread that draws them to the team
  • How I wrote the How to Hire the Best series, three books on the same topic to focus on what’s working–a clear guide to finding success as a small business owner
  • The facts: 9 out of 10 entrepreneurs have NO system in place to attract A-players!
  • Why there are huge gaps in the areas of on-boarding and team development
  • Why there are subtle ways that having “warm bodies” on our team instead of A-players is costing business owners in BIG ways
  • Why getting warm bodies off your team and replacing them with A-players mean fewer team members and lower payroll costs
  • Exciting new episodes about hiring solutions are coming up as we celebrate our 200th episode!
  • How are your limiting beliefs preventing you from hiring the BEST? Join us for the upcoming Livenar and our next How to Hire the Best course

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.
