How to build an awesome agency team; a workshop with Janusz Stabik

BCI Workshop

20th Apr 2021





Running and growing agency depends entirely on recruiting and retaining good people who do great work. You work hard to attract great employees, you want the best! But what does the “best” really mean?  Good cultural fit?  Good at their job?  Experienced?  Passionate about their work?  All of this?

If any of the following rings true, this workshop is for you:

  • We have a great team, but we need a framework to ensure we understand what good looks like and how to recruit more of the same type of people going forward
  • Managing creatives/developers/{agency employees} is hard and can often feel like ‘herding cats’, there must be an easier way
  • You are on the cusp of growth and building the right team is key to success
  • Some of your people always underdeliver, their work is constantly substandard, and you spend most of your time managing them
  • Some of your people just don’t ‘fit’, they don’t have the right work ethic, and you feel constantly frustrated (perhaps they feel frustrated too)
  • You find it difficult to recruit good people and the competitive labour market is making this even more difficult
  • You have some great people working for you, but they never quite go the extra mile
  • I’m unsure what cultural fit means, but there are certain people who just don’t gel in our agency

At the end of this workshop you will:

  • Understand the two types of people problems that are killing your business, and what to do about it
  • Define what the ‘best people’ for your business look like in a simple, concise, insightful and action-oriented framework
  • Be able to measure your team (and applicants) against both cultural fit and job performance, simply and effectively
  • Have a mechanism to help grow and nurture an awesome agency culture

This workshop is aimed at agency owners/founders & directors.
