How To Find The Right People to Do the Right Job, With Sigurdur Arnason

As an entrepreneur, there comes a time when you no longer have to do everything in your business yourself. A time that you now have to let other experts do the tasks that will drive your company to where you have envisioned it to be in the end. To achieve the goals you have set for yourself and the company, everything heavily depends on the people you choose to undertake these tasks. The team you choose will determine whether you succeed or not.

Sometimes you might need to do something but you simply don’t have the ability yourself, so you need to call in people with the skills you need to accomplish your goal. Like if I want to start a company that makes smartphones, I don’t have to know how to make the phones myself. I only have to find someone who knows how to make smartphones to make them for me. Just because Elon Musk’s company makes spacecraft doesn’t mean he builds them himself, but he has experts in the field do it. Without the right guys, achieving your goal is impossible.

Delegation plays a very important role. You have to know who to delegate to or else all your dreams of running a successful enterprise are out the window. Knowing who to allocate a task to can be the difference between success and failure.

This fact is so important and I had to seek an opinion from a professional. Someone who has put this theory to test, Sigurdur Arnason. Arnason is the founder of VIBE Mobile, a music platform that allows users to create their musical identity through sound and visuals without the requirement of a musical background whatsoever. VIBE lets you merge with the music.

I asked Arnason what is the one thing that has contributed to his success with Vibe and his answer was simple.

“I have good people onboard.”

Arnason is a master at finding the right people to do the right job. That makes him the perfect person to answer the question that is the basis for this piece.

How Do You Find The Right People to Do the Right Job?

The answer to this question is not as complex as you might think. When I asked Arnason, he broke it down for me into two answers.

  1. The ability of the person to do the job.
  2. Trust.

It’s easy when you think about it. You must identify the best methods to evaluate the people you are trusting to take into your establishment. Know that you can trust them to do their best to achieve the goals you have set for the company.

We will get deeper into how you know the person you are hiring is the best for the job and how trust comes into play in the next piece.

Until then, remember to be nice to the individuals in your team and help them advance in what they do. To do so, structure a career progression plan for the employees and try to understand every team member’s personal goals. By helping them achieve their personal goals they help you achieve the goal you’ve set for the company.
