When looking at your company’s vision, mission, and culture, how important would you say people are? In addition, how important would you say having the right person in the right position is?
If you said extremely important, you’re right.
Your employees should fit the company culture, understand and buy into the vision and mission of the organization, and do their best to contribute to its success.
Great companies understand that talented people are their greatest resource.
“Get the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats.”
This famous quote by Jim Collins from his book Good to Great is powerful in its simplicity and logic.
And, having the right people on the “bus” is not that easy to accomplish – it is often the hardest asset to find and keep.
So, how do successful businesses find the right people and keep them on their team?
Great leaders put a lot of time and effort into finding, recruiting, developing, coaching, and providing feedback to their employees.
It starts with hiring the right people, who will have personal values that closely align with your company’s core values. They have a real passion for the company and are enthusiastic about the work it does and their role in it.
The right person will not have to be tightly managed, will expect delegation, and won’t thrive in a control-oriented hierarchy. He or she understands that their job and their responsibility is to achieve results; so they do what they say they will do and they want to be held accountable for results.
The right people will carefully choose what they commit to, and once they do, they will be dedicated and deliver on their commitments. They are responsive and transparent. When things go well, they readily point out success factors in others, and when things don’t go well, they readily take responsibility.
