How To Get The Best From Your People

Getting the best out of a team of people means getting the best out of the individuals that make up that team. i2i have been doing this for years and we know what it takes to help people perform at their very best. We call it The Success Blueprint and it tells you how to get the best from your people!

This can work in all shapes and sizes of business. Please get in touch if you’d like to know more about how we do this and how we can help your teams achieve their potential.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Create a Vision, Mission and Values for your business, so people can tell what exactly you are all about, where you are headed and whether they want to join in or not.
  2. Create Behaviours to tell them how to treat each other and explain that adherence is essential and that disregard is terminal.
  3. Motivated Minds only will do, so being only moderately ‘up for it’ won’t do.
  4. Assess Talent and match them to jobs so that you play to a person’s strengths and they love their jobs and add huge value
  5. Build a World Class Support Environment with momentum which at every turn reinforces your purpose and objectives

Let’s look at five in detail, as there are ten parts to this:

  1. Set clear Personal Goals which feed into the overall goal
  2. Empower the person to achieve them
  3. Supervise them as closely as they need
  4. Coach them to enhance their performance
  5. Mentor them so they can ask questions safely of a knowledgeable colleague
  6. Measure their performance
  7. Evaluate performance constantly (daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly/annually)
  8. Incentivise and reward them handsomely when they do perform
  9. Recognise success appropriately
  10. Communicate constantly to reinforce all that you stand for and to tell people how you and they are doing

That’s it. Easy as that. All there is. What are you waiting for? i2i would be very happy to help assist introducing this across your business so please get in touch if you need any help with leading that, following it, starting it or implementing it.

As you know, i2i can deliver a range of solutions that will help your teams to perform to their very best.
