Spring is the time of year we look around to fill our senses with the vibrant colors and warm temperatures that bring out the best in our gardens. New growth is a welcome sight after a long winter.
If only we could see this type of renewal and growth in the people we work with. What is it that allows this kind of brilliant growth in people -not just for a season, but for the long-term? In many ways, personal growth is like that of a plant. First, we ask, “Are they the right fit for the culture of the organization?” Your culture is like soil. Next, we ponder, “Do they have the characteristics to blossom in their position and work?” Will they bloom vibrantly and thrive in the environment? Will they grow to their full potential?
How can we learn these types of things about people? The answer is deceptively simple. We take a scientific approach to connecting people and performance, then develop an understanding of the unique culture and mission in an organization.
Is your garden growing the way you desire?
