The ability to form an effective team whose members have complementary skills is an entrepreneurial quality. All good entrepreneurs know how to recognize the strengths of each member of their team and to mobilize each member wisely. They also have the ability to do networking and to identify key players who can help bring projects to successful completion.

As a successor or buyer, you will use this ability to surround yourself with capable people to help you take over the management of the business and build a new team of old and new employees. This ability will also help you to create links with the various stakeholders in the business and the key players in the industry in which it operates.
