6 Steps to Hiring the Perfect Manager

6 Steps to Hiring the Perfect Manager

As a small business owner, you can’t do everything yourself. Eventually you will need to hire one – or several – managers. Here are the six steps you need to go through in order to find your perfect manager match.

  1. Look inside your business first. Is there someone already working there that would qualify as a manager? It’s always better to promote from within than it is to hire from outside. It boosts morale, and gives your other employees something to aspire to.
  2. Write down the qualifications you need in a manager. You need to know exactly the type of person you’re going to hire. If you don’t have a criteria, finding your perfect manager will be much harder.
  3. Don’t hire someone who is similar to you. Hire someone who has all of the strengths you don’t have. You need someone to support and compliment your role as an owner, not a clone of you.
  4. Find someone who isn’t scared to interact with your other employees. A manager should encourage morale, and build strength in your employees. You need someone who can work with your team and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
  5. Conduct thorough interviews. Take your time. Ask the right questions.
  6. Rule out everyone who doesn’t qualify. Don’t compromise on the list that you wrote down. If you didn’t find your perfect manager in the first round of interviews, keep going until you do.
