Do you remember the days of dragging your clothes down to the nearest river or stream and spending most of your day beating clothes on rocks to get them clean? Of course not! Because some innovative person, somewhere along the line, discovered a more efficient way to get that job done. No more struggling to complete that task.
The innovation that brought us the washing machine made life easier and freed us up to focus on more important things. In fact, as our understanding of technology evolved, it got better and better until we’ve gotten to a place in time where we can put our clothes in one machine and have them washed, dried and ready to wear when we get home from doing those other things. Think about it… that’s REVOLUTIONARY… not to mention AMAZING!
I know that, for leaders and managers, getting the best out of a team has sometimes felt like that arduous task of banging clothes against rocks to get them clean. At HRetc!!, we’re innovating and evolving to take what we’ve learned through the years to find more efficient, effective ways for organizations to do what they need to do. And through my own personal and professional evolution, I’ve discovered a way for organizations to not only thrive, but to FLOURISH.
What I’ve learned is…
Leaders are not solely responsible for the success or failure of a team to engage and meet objectives. It’s about leaders and teams having specific conversations that create symbiotic relationships. It’s about creating an environment and partnerships that make interactions, communication, and vision intentional and productive.
It’s about having a clearer, more defined direction and vision and articulating how people “fit” within that partnership… allowing all individuals to work in ways that make them feel strong and organically engaged… and unleashing the potential of your most powerful resource – the RIGHT people in the RIGHT roles, making the RIGHT contributions. And ALIGNMENT is the key!
Think about your car, your bicycle chain, a rowing team, or even the washing machine. Nothing works as efficiently as it was designed to when it’s out of alignment. That’s true in business too. And we’re getting set to reveal a shift in perspective and tools that will align teams and dramatically change how everybody works together — in the best possible way — to bring the RIGHT results.
The revolutionary evolution of HRetc!! is coming soon. And I can’t wait to reveal it all to you!
