Good to Great - People Decisions

Here’s something to think about it…

There are many organizations whose top priority evolves around attracting and retaining talent. As I read Jim Collins’s book “Good to Great,” he notes 3 practical disciplines for being rigorous in people decisions:

  • When in doubt, don’t hire - keep looking. (Corollary: A company should limit its growth based on its ability to attract enough of the right people.)

  • When you know you need to make a people change, act. (Corollary: First be sure you don’t simply have someone in the wrong seat.)

  • Put your best people on your biggest opportunities, not your biggest problems. (Corollary: If you sell off your problems, don’t sell off your best people.) (Collins, 2021, p.63)

So, my question to you:

  • What disciplines are you following?

Are you ready to dig into building the skills required to level up from Good to Great? I help Organizations inspire confidence back into their team for innovation and growth. I help Organizations design and implement a system that fosters and protects a strong culture where employees are heard and understood from leadership down. In doing so, individual team members can gain confidence to bravely introduce innovative ideas and grow the company. If you are ready to get started, please reach out to chat.
