Defining Core Values
Would you enthusiastically rehire every person in your company? 

Jim Collins, strategist and author of Good to Great, penned it best:  “Leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with “where” but with “who.” They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats. And they stick with that discipline—first the people, then the direction—no matter how dire the circumstances”.

People issues are the primary cause of anxiety in most family businesses. Dealing with conflict, deciding who will be in key positions, addressing performance issues, and adding family members are just some of the messy people issues family businesses need to deal with.

Selection and Retention of A-Players
What makes an A-player?  An A player is an employee who aligns to the core values of the organization and delivers results.  Too many times, companies hold on to people because they produce results, but in fact, they are killing the organization because they are not aligned to the company’s core values.  These are the back stabbers, powermongers, and gossipers that destroy the organization from the inside out.

A-players only want to play with other A players.  They won’t stick around long if they see leadership is unwilling to deal with B and C players. 

Continual Leadership Development of the Leadership Team.
There are three barriers to growth in a company, and it starts with the leadership team – their ability to grow as leaders, predict, and delegate.  As the leadership team goes, so goes the company.  The best leaders commit to a lifetime of learning to become better leaders. 

We utilize assessments from Extended Disc, 36 360 Assessments, 5 Dysfunctions of a Team, Strengths Finders and others to help identify leadership potential, strengths to leverage, and areas to develop.  We also facilitate workshops for leadership teams on topics from change management to conflict resolution, or tailor a program specific to your needs.
