Today, Adam Wells with GSTVC shares with us how he and the GST team embrace various aspects of culture for growing businesses.
Growth Culture: The Right People on the Bus
Last week we talked about the reward of having diversity in a multi-talented team, a team that is focused on achieving your primary business goal. I like how Jim Collins puts it: The Right People on the Bus (Good to Great).
How do you attract, evaluate, onboard & retain The Right People?
- Attraction, in part, occurs when your company’s Mission, Vision & Values resonate with a candidate.
- Evaluation is an effort best undertaken with the goal of understanding a candidate’s motivation, capability and approach/tactics.
- Onboarding can be most effective (read fast & thorough) when you have lite but meaningful processes and a culture of mentorship & initiative.
- Retention is achieved through the mutual recognition of opportunity and appreciation for productivity.
Which of the above phases does your company excel? Which of the above have presented challenges for your company recently?
We'd love to hear from you!
