Using Icebreakers and Team Development to Create Your Job Culture – Episode 203

Using Icebreakers and Team Development to Create Your Job Culture

Business owners are busy! One area that often gets overlooked and pushed aside is team development. To give you an inside look at how we're working on team development with our Tap the Potential team, we're pulling back the curtain. We hope this episode is helpful for you and your business!

Dr. Sabrina is joined today by Melissa Swire, the Lead Strategist at Tap the Potential. She joined the team in 2019 and carries forward her passion for helping entrepreneurs. Together, Melissa and Dr. Sabrina discuss how to build a better place to work by keeping your team members inspired and encouraged. In this way, your team members will do more for your business and alleviate some of the pressure that small business owners feel.

Join us as we discuss team development and learn how it could be the key to overcoming your hiring challenges.

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

Show Highlights:
  • Why it makes a difference to build a “family” culture where people feel that they work with friends
  • How Tap the Potential creates a safe, supportive workplace through team huddles and icebreakers
  • Why it’s important to be sensitive to the psychology of A-players, especially the tendency to say YES and overachieve
  • How team huddles give a level of accountability with open and honest communication
  • Melissa highlights some of her favorite icebreaker questions
  • How a “user manual” for each team member gives a lot of information about their preferences, struggles, communication styles, etc.
  • Why business owners need to have mutually-invested relationships on their team that support team members in their dreams (Our new Dream Manager Program can help!)
  • How building a great team frees up the business owner to take care of other things (Our How to Hire the Best course covers it all!)

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.
