You’ve just taken the helm at your company – now what? The first thing you need to do is assemble your top team. To do it well, you need to answer these seven important questions.

Are they outstanding representatives of their functions?

Whether it’s marketing, operations, finance, or government relations, choose people who are accomplished and respected experts in their chosen disciplines.

Do they have the right values? 

You must be able to trust them to do what’s right for the organization.

Can they balance their functional orientation with what’s good for the business as a whole? 

Your top team must understand and support the overall strategy and vision – and, when necessary, be willing to disappoint their people for the greater good.
