Building Teams That Can Go The Distance
The success of a business is, in large part, dependent on the health of the teams that develop, produce, sell, market, and distribute their products or services . There are key elements that healthy teams have in common, each building on the other. If one or more of these elements are weak, the team is crippled and unable to reach optimum productivity.
The ability to create and maintain good relationships, both internally and externally, is often the difference between success and failure. A person's emotional Intelligence affects every relationship they have. Once considered a "soft skill", research done over the past 15 years show that 90% of top performers have a high EQ. While your IQ is fixed when you are born, your EQ is a learned skill that can be developed and mastered.
Making Superior Hires
Harvard Business Review estimates that as much as 80% of employee attrition is due to bad hiring decisions. When an employee becomes disengaged, they slow productivity, can create toxicity on teams and eventually leave or get fired. Gallup estimates that it can cost one and a half to more than twice an employee's salary to find a train a replacement. Replacing leadership costs much more than that. Putting an assessment protocol in place that that measures position-specific indicators increases your chances of hiring employees that have good judgment, and are most capable of being a successful member of your organization.
