Creating a Culture of Doing Business Effectively(™):  Including the Right People

July 21, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

***This post is part of a series of on how to Do Business Effectively(™).  R. Shawn McBride helps business Do Business Effectively(™).***

Part of Doing Business Effectively(™) is including the right people in your organizations.

We recommend two main (interrelated) strategies to make sure you have the right people with your organization: selective hiring and use of the Promotability Process(™) in the DBE Pyramid.

First to be effective we need a good hiring process that brings in the right people into your organization. The key here is to know who you want, what skills you need and screening for the right people.

The second piece is the one we want to focus on in this article.

If you review the Do Business Effectively(™) Pyramid you’ll notice that the Promotability Process(™) comes early in the training under the pyramid (you work from the bottom to the top):

Promotability Process(™) is critical to making sure you have the right people. The Promotability Process(™) is partially about showing employees how they can advance in your organization. More importantly the Promotability Process(™) sets expectations of your staff. We recommend that your evaluations mirror what the outcomes you want from your team in the performance of their jobs.

And in designing the DBE Pyramid we put the Promotability Process(™) as early in the training as possible. We would not recommend it before It’s About Time or Do Business Differently(™) because the staff member needs to know their goals and what’s unique about them before they can determine if they are a fit to be promoted in the organization.

But as soon as possible strong expectations – and goals – are communicated to the staff member. Then regular evaluations can start to see if the staff member is progressing in the organization.

Additionally the clear expectations may cause staff members that don’t fit to select themselves out of the organization. And that’s a win too.

This is amazingly simple, yet powerful, like the entire Do Business Effectively(™) Pyramid.

If you think your organization might benefit from Do Business Effectively(™) give us a call at McBride For Business, LLC and we can discuss your needs – 214-418-0258.
