How To Stay Organized While Building A Team

For any business, growth often means building a team to meet increasing demands.  Let’s be honest, it’s a great feeling to know that you’re so busy and it’s time to hire help. It shows things are going in the right direction! Here are some strategies and recommendations to help you stay organized while building your dream team.

Project Management Software: Invest in project management software like Trello, Asana, or Notion to keep track of tasks, deadlines, and team progress in a centralized location. Here at Mango, we are Notion girlies. Notion is an all-in-one workspace that allows teams to create and customize databases, documents, wikis, and task lists, providing a centralized hub for information and project management.

Document Sharing: Unless you’ve been living under a rock - Sharing docs with your team has never been easier with cloud-based document sharing platforms like Google Drive or Dropbox to store and collaborate on documents. It ensures everyone has access to the latest information. Google Workspace is our fave and offers a suite of productivity tools including Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and Google Docs. It provides businesses with email, storage, scheduling, and document collaboration capabilities in one integrated platform.

Communication Platform: Utilize communication tools like Slack or Microsoft Teams to facilitate real-time communication, collaboration, and information sharing among team members. Maintaining a centralized communication platform will make collaborating seamless.  

Microsoft Teams is a communication and collaboration platform that combines chat, video conferencing, file sharing, and app integration, providing businesses with a comprehensive solution.

A few basic must-haves while building a team:

Set Clear Goals and Objectives: Define specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals for the team to work towards, providing direction and motivation for everyone involved.

Regularly Evaluate and Adjust Processes: Continuously evaluate team processes and workflows to determine any areas for improvement, and be willing to adjust strategies accordingly. You need to be able to quickly adapt within your business.

You can effectively navigate the challenges of growing a team while maintaining your business and organization. It may not be easy but the points we hit above will ease some of the stress it takes to run a business and build a dream team.
