What Tianna Does As An I/O Psychologist
When you study human behavior at work, the one thing you can change is how the environment of work looks. By cultivating and empowering your workplace, you can take the principles and concepts and apply them to fit in the online world.
In the corporate world, Tianna says you would hire and build a team. A leader doesn’t think about doing too many things the way an entrepreneur does. There isn’t a mindset fear for corporate leaders. Instead, it’s all about hiring, re-orgs, diversity, and systems. With entrepreneurs and solopreneurs you often have to touch on their mindset and work on their fears. Tianna helps educate them from the start, so they can start off on the right foot and save so much clutter, time, and money.
Tianna describes that once a small business owner realizes they need to hire, you have to make decisions about all the aspects of hiring. The first thing she recommends as the leader, you have to know your vision for your business and the organizational structure.
You have to consider…
- Who is on your team?
- How big do you want the team to be?
These questions will impact who and when you hire. We don’t always go into business expecting to have to outsource or hire, but as you grow, you realize that there are things you want help doing.
How To Hire Before You Are Ready
Most people have a mindset block about hiring before they are ready, a big reason why is because of finances. The truth is that with just a little bit of profit, you can decide to bring someone on. If your business isn’t yet profitable, you can consider operating at a deficit if your risk tolerance or situation allows this.
Privilege has to be acknowledged; not everyone can operate at a deficit. When you look at successful entrepreneurs, you need to recognize that some don’t need the money and have a privileged situation. For those who don’t don’t have the finances or aren’t comfortable operating in the red, an option to consider is bartering your services.
How Tianna Helps You Find Your Next Hire
In the beginning, people try to figure out if they are ready to hire and who they should hire first. Tianna assists in assessing and gaining clarity on how they are spending their time working through things together. She suggests starting with a Daily Work Log for one week. This will help you look at the tasks you perform and decide what should be automated, delegated, or to keep doing. From this, you will be able to identify the tasks that can be delegated or outsourced.
Beyond that, Tianna gets tactical and does 90-minute intensives and maps out what your hiring process is going to look like. She takes us through how to build it and how it differs depending on the role and the entrepreneur. Tianna’s goal is to help you feel comfortable with finding your hire and the entire hiring process.
Finally, she describes how asking the right questions in the interview process is one of the most strategic parts of the hiring process. You need to ask open-ended questions to get precise answers about how you handle a situation. Everyone’s answer is different, and the response each person is looking for is very different, but that will determine who fits the role. Tianna reminds us that hiring the right people for the right job is one of the most strategic things you will do in your business.
