How to Build a High-Impact Team with Daniella Bellaire

 

How do you accelerate impact quickly and build empowered teams?

Daniella Bellaire, Global Head of Revenue Enablement at Shopify, spent the last 4 years in high-growth startup environments and she shares this aha moment that helped her build teams:

1. Level up the talent bar with each new hire

Be hyper intentional about the type of talent, experience, and skillset you’re bringing in:

  • Use an interview scorecard
  • Tap into your network to bring in people with the right skillset and culture fit
  • Adopt a collaborative approach with the leadership team to empower them

2. Empower your team to make decisions

Early in her career, Daniella was more prescriptive with her team. But after being in the startup world, she’s experienced the freedom to make decisions and be more autonomous.

Now she looks for ways to empower her teams to do the same, to be creative, and think of new ways to solve problems and drive business impact.

Empowering your team to make decisions has many positive outcomes:

  • They have a sense of pride and accomplishment
  • They’re celebrated for their great ideas
  • They’ll feel more engaged and connected to outcomes

It helps with overall happiness, retention, career-pathing and so much more!
