Interview with Lucus Lyons
This month, we’re focusing on building a team. Who to hire, when to hire, and how to find the right people. Last week, I shared the difference between coaches and consultants, and which one you may need to grow your business. This week, I’m focusing on how to cultivate an engaged and loyal team, starting from the hiring process.
In my 10+ years of business, I’ve made a number of missteps when it comes to hiring. I’ve hired the wrong people, for the wrong reasons, at the wrong time. And even when I had the right people on my team, I didn’t know how to effectively lead them and cultivate a team culture that made good people want to stay.
I had to learn through trial and error, but thanks to people like today’s guest, Lucus Lyons, you don’t have to. Lucus has 15+ years of leadership and coaching experience, both in corporate and for entrepreneurs. In 14 years at Chase Bank, his teams consistently ranked in the top 10% nationally between Chicago, Sacramento and San Francisco. The common thread to success in every location was building great relationships with his team. Now, a freelance consultant, he’s bringing what he’s learned in his corporate gig and helping entrepreneurs like us build better teams.
Whether you’re a side-hustler, solopreneur, or have already built up your team, you won’t want to miss Lucus’s unique views on interviewing, leadership, and relationship building.
