Get the Inside Scoop on Hiring A-Players Part 2

In last week’s Part 1 of this series, we took a close look at A-players, including who they are, what they are looking for, and how you can attract, train, and retain them. Don’t you want to become the employer of choice for the A-players you want to attract to your team? Join us now for Part 2 as we discuss creative solutions to bridge the gaps in this process.

As in last week’s episode, Dr. Sabrina is joined today by Kaitlyn Beaver, Success Concierge at Tap the Potential. Kaitlyn has a strong background in workforce development and marketing, so her insights are essential to this discussion. She also helps teach Tap the Potential’s How to Hire the Best course, which is a comprehensive way to learn practical skills for hiring A-players for your team and gaining a competitive advantage in the market. If you listened to last week’s Part 1 and are ready to dive deeper in today’s discussion, let’s continue!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:

  • Why many small business owners have growing concerns about skills gaps
  • Why hiring in relation to your immutable laws and desired personality strengths is better than hiring for specific skills
  • Why generational gaps exist in the workforce, especially in communication styles, work expectations, and attitudes (Helpful tools include the People Map Assessment, User Manual, and the A-Player Development Plan.)
  • Why gaps exist in the areas of employee engagement and leadership (Helpful tools are Leadership Bootcamp and Coach Approach.)
  • Why is A-player development important?
  • What better decision-making and innovation mean for engaging and energizing A-players
  • What A-players want to know about their employers of choice
  • How there are creative ways to add value for A-players around competitive compensation, benefits, AND intangible perks that matter even more than money
  • Kaitlyn’s tips for business owners who want to leverage social media to attract A-players and highlight their brand

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.
