Remodeling is a team activity. It takes the input of many people, working toward the same goal, to build a consistently successful business.
Think about it – a sports team is only as good as its weakest player. Similarly, a remodeling company is only as good as its weakest employee. This means that top-notch hiring, motivating and training skills are very important.
Every employee is a key employee – even your least paid worker can have a big impact on your business and its profitability. Put another way, people are your greatest asset.
Many remodelers, especially if you’ve come from a technical, hands-on position, may have limited experience in managing and motivating others. But this is a key skill to develop if you want to have a company that delivers a great product, provides employees a path for advancement, allows you to take off some of the hats to focus on your favorite parts of the business, and of course, generates the profits you need.
In this course, we’re going to drill into the hiring process – the first step in building your team. We’ll cover the creating of the building blocks such as job descriptions and employee handbooks. You’ll learn techniques for recruiting great prospective employees and absorb information about the array of tools that will help you identify the superstars in the crowd.
You’ll also learn how to onboarding these new employees so that you can keep them after you’ve hired them.

And In the end I want you to be able to delegate without fear, giving your team members the opportunity to shine and grow while they learn to act like owners. So dive in and let’s get started.
