As you evolve, grow and improve so will the composition of your team. Everyone won’t make the next round. You can’t bring everyone up at the same time. Teams will change and continue to evolve.
Finding top talent is an ongoing effort that never stops. Engage into your community, region, nation and beyond to meet new people and learn about their values, skills and capabilities. You never know when an opportune match might materialize out of seemingly nothing. Always look for top talent.

7 signs your boss is not a leader: 1. Lack of vision, motivation and inspiration 2. People do not come first 3. Excuses, not enough resources 4. They hide from tough decisions 5. No accountability 6. No confidence 7. No team empowerment to take actions

Before you judge anyone, try to understand their position and walk a mile in their shoes. In today’s world filled with divisions, separations and hidden agendas, it is easy to lose humanity and join others in this blame game.

To build high-performing teams, one must be intentional about including different backgrounds, experiences, ideas and thoughts. You don’t want more of you, you want more of them, more of others who are comfortable being themselves and are willing to freely share their perspectives, experiences and ideas.
Practical experience matters, a lot. If you have never done what you lead it is difficult to gain credibility and complete understanding of what it takes to successfully enable progress and new capabilities in those areas.
