To establish a healthy startup there are many equipments required. Therefore while recruiting, the management should be wise and select people who can carry off the tasks provided to them in the most responsible manner. Startups look out for talent hidden in individuals whom they hire. Everybody possess talent of pertaining to various streams and sectors of their choice, but it is not put into action in an organization effectively, says Peter S. Cohan of the website ‘Entrepreneur’.
The reasons maybe many, but it is on the shoulders of the employer to recognize a person’s talent and utilize it in the startup. The workload in a startup is more and the returns earned is less, therefore while considering employees, one must always look out for the talent in them, so that their talent fetches revenue for the company.Peter S Cohan lists down three important things which you may have to consider which talented individuals maybe apprehensive about.
#1. Be Clear about your thoughts: An entrepreneur should have crystal clear ideas about his venture. It is important to plan and jot down the time line for his company. The employee, who wants to join the company, would walk in to do something new, or settle down at the zenith in the years to come.
Therefore it is important for the employer to know what he and his organization are upto, because the initial interest and excitement should last forever till the company soars as it was planned earlier.
#2. Think Far From Now: Long term goals are important to keep a person going with zeal. This is because if you place a mirror in front of him that he will be a capable leader in the years to come, he will believe it and work hard to pursue the position. Passion is always instilled in him to reach that place and this does not vanish until he achieves his goal. Therefore it is reflected in the company’s growth instantaneously.
#3. Short-Term Goals are necessary too : Short term goals are like ranks in school; because once you are in the league of rank holders you aspire be ace in the run. This is like a step procedure which goes in the descending order. If the first one is accomplished, you move to the second, third, fourth until you succeed to reach the ultimate dream that you have set.
