Most CEOs struggle with people problems.
In 2019, Predictive Index surveyed 156 CEOs, presidents, and chairpeople for the Annual CEO Benchmarking Report. We learned that four of their five biggest business challenges were all about talent challenges.
So why is it such a struggle to hire, engage, and retain top talent?
Why do groups struggle to work together? Why is it so difficult to coach and motivate employees to work at their max capacity to achieve business goals?
These are all questions you’ve probably asked yourself before.
This is why you’re not hitting your business goals.
Our CEO survey revealed that 52 percent of the CEOs didn’t achieve their strategic goals in 2018. What’s causing this gap between goals and results?
Senior leaders develop a business strategy and they decide which operational and financial metrics they’ll measure to determine success. But what sits between the strategy and the results are people. And too many leaders don’t have an end-to-end talent strategy that works.
Good news: A solution exists to close the gap, and it’s called talent optimization. Below is a brief overview.
Business context MUST frame talent endeavors.
Talent optimization is informed by business strategy and it produces desired business results. In this way, business context “wraps” talent optimization. It provides essential context that will guide everything you do, from designing your organization’s structure to evaluating the abilities of your senior leadership team.
Create a human system for high performance in leaders and teams.
Most companies don’t know how to assemble high-performing teams.
They don’t know how to manage their people in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game. Leaders create a business strategy. Leaders monitor business results. But the same leaders fail to do the key “people work” in between—you know, empowering, engaging and truly leading the employees executing the business strategy. Result? Leaders fail to reach their goals.
Talent optimization is a four-part discipline you can use to create high-performing leaders at EVERY LEVEL. These leaders will align your business strategy with your people strategy and CRUSH business results.
