EP 4 | How Small Business Owners Can Make Smart Hiring Choices With Kaylyn Lehmann

Here’s what to expect from this episode:

How do you know if someone will be a good fit for your team's personality? As a business owner, what can you do to set new team members up for success? When hiring, you need to ask yourself some key questions about your vision for your business and where you need to fill the gaps to sustain it. In this episode, I sit down with my dear friend, Kaylyn Lehmann, an expert in team building.


Kaylyn Lehmann is a Partner and CEO of Simplified Coach, based in the US. She loves working with ‘bulldozers’ – a term she uses for people who are incredibly dedicated, committed, and so driven that they are inadvertently stepping on people to try and reach their goals. Kaylyn also specializes in helping people see when they are unconsciously sabotaging themselves. She is passionate about growing, learning, evolving, consciously connecting with others, and contributing to the world. 


Kaylyn and I explore how you can assess whether new team members will be a good fit and what you can do as a business owner to ensure new members are successful.

Topics covered:

  • Building your team as a small business owner
  • The challenges of owning a small business
  • Tools to figure out if someone is a good fit for your business
  • Finding your blind spots as a business owner
  • What happens if you do hire the wrong person
  • What we can learn from big companies
  • Setting expectations for new hires 

At the end of the day, you started your small business so that you could live the life you love. Kaylyn shared some wonderful tips for hiring a new employee with a similar mindset to yours.
