As a broker you may have faced this dilemma: whether to allow associates to build their own teams. So often the lines between team leader and owner get blurred, with team leaders (and even associates) forgetting their roles within the company.
However, those issues should not discourage brokers from building teams. Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate (BHGRE®) held a seminar on the benefits of team building for brokers, with one focus in mind: positive growth.
Growth in a company often leads to increased productivity, stronger work ethic and more creative output. This type of growth is an invaluable asset found in successful teams. BHGRE’s seminar discussed the stages in which successful teams are built, and how brokers can be effective leaders, mentors and bosses during this transition period, as scary as it may seem.
As a broker, the most important part of team building is making sure your associate is qualified to be a team leader.
Be sure to read about the other issues to consider in our latest Clean Slate blogpost. In the end, if you’re looking for growth for your brokerage, building a team of professional, like-minded agents makes sense. The key, as always, is finding the right team and the right team leaders.
