As an entrepreneur and business owner, you, more than anyone, can appreciate the power of having the right people in the right seats. When everyone is properly placed in a role that allows them to flourish, remain motivated and engaged and driving your company forward, everyone wins. Ninety EOS software can help you find and maintain the right people in the right seats for your company.
Like Certified EOS Implementer™, Dean Breyley says,
To paraphrase Jim Collins from his book ‘Good to Great’, making sure that you have the ‘Right People’ (Core Values Fit), in the ‘Right Seats’ (Job Roles), is fundamental to the success and growth of your company. Having any number of people in the wrong roles is a defining factor of whether any business grows or stalls in the long term.
So, think about your people. Do you have Core Value fit across the board? Could there be some misplaced people? When is the last time you had a Quarterly Conversation to learn where your people’s capacity, desire and abilities stand?
Taking the time to have those conversations can be paramount in determining fit and GWC™ for your people and their sets. Dean shares:
'GWC™' is a tool from The Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), that enables leaders to solve this issue quickly and objectively. The tool simply requires you to ask three questions of your people: 1). Do they Get it? 2). Do they Want it? and 3). Do they have the Capacity to do it? – with the answer to each being a non-negotiable Yes or No --"kind of" is not an option! When you answer these questions openly and honestly, if any one of the three questions are a No, then that person is in the wrong seat. It’s a very powerful exercise that can highlight the real issues a company may be facing.
So, think about your people again. When is the last time you got open and honest feedback regarding GWC?
Set up your Quarterly Conversations™ or Annual Reviews in Ninety and initiate that powerful feedback. Linking directly to the seats on the Accountability Chart, pulling in each Role and Responsibility and Quarterly Rock, make sure your people are in seats that they get, want and have the capacity to do.
Ninety makes leveraging the GWC tool simple and powerful.
