A Strong is the Foundation for Growth
Pivot in change of strategy, not vision - Eric Ries
1. One-Eighty Shift
If you are looking at creating a high-performing workforce, which is hyper-connected and can keep your businesses innovative, firstly you need to ask yourself this important question.
'Have I got the right mindset?
'Problems cannot be solved with the same level of thinking that created them' - Albert Einstein
There is a reason why not all businesses are as high-performing now, as they may have been in the past.
They no longer hold all the cards.
The businesses coming out on top are heart-led and people-centric.
Which takes a different level of thinking, dedication, commitment and most importantly, care and compassion.
The truth is, most businesses still have a traditional 'organsational-centric' mindset and are building teams using just the old ways of thinking and tactics.
Leaders who are using past experiences and perspectives alone and not prepared to look through the lens of others and the future, are going to be left behind.
'Energy flows, where intention goes'
It's more than a shift in business strategy, but a way of being.
Together, we can make this shift happen.
Step 2. Inside Out Discovery
Clarity - Is the team aligned to your vision, values and displaying a high level of positivity, productivity, and performance? How much time and energy are you investing in your people?
Analysis - What impact is your People Strategy and People Experiences (PX) (or lack of) having on your people, performance, and profits?
Evaluation - What is working for you, against you and how can you consistently improve? What steps can make your People Strategy and Experiences (PX) your competitive advantage for winning the war of talent and turn your Purpose + People = Performance + Profits?
As a business grows, teams may not be equipped for future growth or possibly have all the skills, attributes and strengths to drive the business to the next level.
The team needs to comprise of individuals who each have a diverse skill set and are not shy to challenge leaders.
There needs to be a strong CORE team.
A team with a high level of Confidence, Openness, Responsiveness, and the ability to Engage.
'How we feel at our core, isn't always how we show up'
But when people step out of their comfort zones, feel challenged or stressed (like during periods of change or growth) CORE levels can lower - which can cause stress internally, affect performance and in turn profits.
It's the responsibility of a leader to ensure CORE levels are kept at an optimum level.
Knowing who everyone is, how they feel, what their strengths are and want they need to be high-performing.
Know the individuals on your team from the inside out.
