We’ve all experienced the thrill of being part of an amazing team, if only for a fleeting moment. Trust, collaboration, and that unstoppable feeling – it’s magic. So, how do you design a winning team? Is it more about raw talent or chemistry? How do you scale that design across the organization so productivity soars and your culture thrives?
The truth is most companies don’t know how to assemble high-performing teams.
They don’t know how to manage employees in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game. They create a business strategy. They monitor their business results. But they don’t do the key “people work” in between—and they fail to reach their goals.
As Certified Talent Optimization Strategists we bring talent optimization to life: a four-part discipline you can use to align your business strategy with your people strategy for optimal business results.
Every business strategy demands results. Whether those results are positive or negative is in the hands of its people. Talent optimization is a discipline that provides business leaders with a framework and tools to design their culture, roles, and teams to maximize business results.
Businesses gain valuable insights by diagnosing their people data to uncover the root of its business challenges. Doing so informs how to design a people strategy, hire purposefully against it, and inspire effectively to produce an engaged workforce that drives business results.
Businesses can’t just put a random assortment of people together on a team and hope for the best. To achieve the best outcome, an organization must leverage people data to deliberately design its approach to leadership, culture, and team dynamics.
The ability to hire well sets the stage for future organizational success. Defining the roles an organization needs and matching the right person to the requirements boosts the opportunity for success.
When leaders understand their employees, and employees understand each other, they are equipped to minimize conflict, reduce organizational toxicity, and communicate more effectively, letting distractions get out of the way of results.
