Happy New Year! Can we still say that?
As you kick off this year, what is your one hope for your people in 2023? Where would you like to see them grow? How would you like to see them engage differently? Do you have a plan for your people?
I commonly hear over and over: ‘people are our greatest asset‘, ‘people are our greatest differentiator,’ and ‘we put people first!’
But my question is: how do you do that?
An easy way to understand the DNA of your people and your teams is to use a behaviour assessment tool like the TTI TriMetrix DNA. Historically as a coach, I really resisted the use of tools, believing: ‘We are all just humans with our own unique make-ups.’ HOWEVER! After I started using this tool to help people and teams start to get to know themselves, I never looked back. The assessment tool sped up the learning and self-awareness process to a place where we were quickly able to dive into more meaningful conversations. It’s rooted in behavioural science and not the latest trendy assessment by a best-selling author.
A good behaviour assessment tool can be used at many of the key stages of an employee’s journey in your organization. Specifically, it can be used for
- Benchmarking Key Roles – define who the best fit for this role is (beyond experience and education)
- Onboarding – run comparison reports between new hires and their new leader
- Coaching & Development
- Conflict Management
- Team Alignment & Communication
- Selling more effectively
When we know the “data” of our employees and our teams, we are better able to orient our check-ins, coaching conversations, and professional development to their specific behavioural attributes and motivators. It’s a powerful tool to ensure that we are really walking our talk when it comes to people-first cultures!
