Building a Team

Wisconsin Music Ventures is growing, and we couldn’t be more excited! Back in February 2020 I was hired by Founder, Owner and Experience Generator, Allison Schweitzer, as WMV Experience Narrator. Joining us from University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is Shannon Couillard. Shannon is a guitarist, originally from Milwaukee, that is currently studying music business and recording technology. As Experience Assistant of the Oshkosh Sector, she will be helping to expand the scope of WMV.

As we become a team and continue to thrive, we want you to flourish too! So here are a few tips to building a winning team.

  1. Develop trust. This is best done through honesty and sincerity especially in a leadership role. Create solid relationships so your judgement can be trusted when it comes to decision making.
  2. Communicate effectively. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you don’t understand a task. Listen without interruptions and be open to suggestions.
  3. Get to know working styles. It is helpful to know how individuals on your team work best. Observe the strengths and weaknesses of your employees and assign tasks based on who is best equipped to complete it in the amount of time given.

Keeping the team strong is an ongoing process but it is worth the success that follows. We hope you’ll get a chance to meet our squad at future WMV events.
