Consider This When Hiring or Building High Performance Teams  –


Most organizations do not have a thorough process for hiring or strategically building their organization. Jim Collins states in his NY Times Best Selling book, Good To Great; “That an organization should ensure that they have the right people on the bus, but more importantly they are all sitting in the right seat!” It is all too common that I see practices who have hired solely based upon someones personality. Having a good personality is important, however we aren’t just dating them we are hoping that this person makes an impact on our bottom line. So in response to Jim Collins statement, we have to verify if they are a fit for the actual position.

In a previous post, I related this to Finding Your Superpower. A portion of the process for building High Performance teams or hiring should include utilizing the Kolbe Testing methodology; This ensures that you have the right people on your bus and that they are in the right seat. Kolbe as a company has numerous tools which many can be paired together based on the goal in mind. Let us know if you desire to create this as a part of your process.
