As a hiring manager in a hyper-growth-focused company, it is easy to get bogged down. You may feel like you’re constantly in “react mode,” putting out fires and trying to keep up with the demands of your job. But if you want to be successful, you must take a step back and focus on the bigger picture.
Here are a few tips for hiring managers on how to organize and avoid getting tired out while in hyper growth.
- Prioritize your time
There’s only so much time in a day, so it’s essential to prioritize your tasks. Ask yourself what is most important and what can wait. Take your day one meeting, one interview at a time, and you will feel more accomplished at the end of the workday.
- Schedule time for yourself
To avoid burnout during the hiring process, it’s important to schedule some “me time” into your day. This can be anything from taking a walk at lunchtime to reading a book before bed. Whatever helps you relax and recharge, make sure to pencil it in.
- Don’t overbook yourself
It’s tempting to try and pack your calendar with as many interviews as possible, but this will only lead to frustration. Overcommitting yourself not only leads to interview fatigue, but can also lead to missed deadlines, rushed work, and a general feeling of being overwhelmed. Instead, focus on quality candidate interviews over quantity.
- Set boundaries
There will always be people who want to take your time, whether it’s colleagues, clients, or family members. It’s important to set boundaries, especially during the hyper-growth process, and say no when you need to. Remember, your time is precious, and you should only spend it on critical things.
- Delegate tasks
To free up your time for interviews you can:
- Delegate tasks to other people.
- If you have employees, give them assignments and trust that they will be able to handle them.
- If you’re handling the interviews with a team, assign specific tasks to specific people so that everyone understands their role.
- Follow up with your team
After delegating tasks to your employees or team members, it’s essential to follow up and ensure they are on track. This will help you avoid potential issues and ensure everyone is working towards the same goal.
