Does this sound like you?

You have successfully grown your business and have made multiple course corrections over the years to meet the ever-changing needs of the marketplace. You have built a strong team to help you deliver quality products and services to your customers.

Although you have had these past successes, recently you are feeling stuck, unsure of what you need to do to take your business to the next level. You now realize that you can’t do it alone anymore; you need a different mix of talent. These symptoms may also describe you:

• Your smart, talented and hardworking employees are now underperforming.
• You have made some poor hiring decisions
• You don’t know what kind of talent you need.
• Your teams are dysfunctional and productivity is dropping.
• Despite your focused coaching efforts, performance is not changing

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you may need to better align your talent with your strategy in order to position your business for Breakthrough Performance. Your overall goal is to get the right people, with the right talents, delivering the right results.

Here are some guidelines to help you get unstuck and start your journey to Breakthrough Performance:

  1. Identify the key positions in your organizations that you need to execute your strategy.
  2. Develop a success profile (performance model) for each of these key positions to include the required thinking style, behavioral characteristics, career interests and education/certifications needed.
  3. Choose an employee assessment from a reputable provider that is valid, reliable and meets or exceeds all 13 of the Department of Labor requirements.
  4. Assess all encumbents in these key positions and perform a talent gap analysis.
  5. Develop a strategic workforce plan to address the needs identified in your gap analysis deciding how best to close the gap, i.e., develop current employees, hire new employees more closely aligned with your needs, or a combination of the two.
  6. Execute your plan.
