Objectively Assess Human Capital

The one thing that all businesses have in common is that it takes people to make the business work. And the success of a business is directly impacted by the characteristics of the people in it. Are they detail focused, or oriented to the “big picture?” Are they team players, or “lone wolves?” Can they change gears quickly when business requirements change? Do the people you have as your workforce really fit the needs of the business? Understanding the “People Side” of your business is not an option for leaders—it is imperative for success.

Right People for the Right Job and Retain Talent

All too often, people are hired into jobs for all the wrong reasons—or without any proven rationale for placement. Then at some point, managers begin to realize that performance is not at the level that it should be, or the employee just doesn’t seem to fit the job. Being able to identify what behavioral characteristics are essential to a function and then match the right people to the right job makes good business sense. People who are happy in their jobs are more engaged, more productive, and much more likely to “go the extra mile” that elevates the company above its competition..

Break Down Silos

Communication is often the single biggest cause of stress within an organization. Sometimes there is too little of it; sometimes way too much; often messages are communicated only to a select few—leaving others out of the loop on critical information. And when people are working in a vacuum of information, sooner or later something will break down. Leaders need to understand that the style of communication that works for some people may not work for others. They need to be aware of their own personal style, and have the ability to adapt that style to fit the needs of the group as a whole. Only when each individual has the information he or she needs to do their jobs effectively, and has been given that information in the manner that suits them best, will the wheels of business turn smoothly.

Increase Sales

Selling is the fuel of commerce. And like an engine that needs more fuel to run faster, every business needs to generate more sales to remain competitive. For most businesses, the human sales force is still the primary vehicle for making the sales connection. For your sales engine to run faster, each component of it—each sales person—must perform at his or her optimum level. Augur’s tools and programs enable leaders to identify the stages of a sales cycle, and identify where each sales person is strongest and where they may need growth opportunities. The result is a more finely tuned sales engine, where the performance of each individual is primed for speed and success.

Improve Employee Engagement

Nothing hurts the bottom line of a business more than paying for employees who are not actively contributing to success. So it makes good business sense for leaders to have the means to identify what motivates each individual on the team to succeed; what keeps each individual engaged in what he or she is charged with doing; and how each person may be rewarded for success in a meaningful way. Augur’s Employee Engagement Survey and Analysis provides an objective method for measuring each individual’s engagement in their current situation. The knowledge gained from this tool and process can then be applied to increase the job satisfaction of each member of a team, regardless of level or function.

Build Effective Teams

The old adage of “too many cooks in the kitchen” holds true in business as well. Effective teams that have a positive impact on business success are comprised of a variety of talent, experience, and style. Not everyone is the team leader, but everyone has a role and a function that is suited to his or her strengths. The key is to identify and understand those individual characteristics, and allow the strengths of each team member to fit into the appropriate niche. The result will be a group of individuals that work harmoniously to achieve their common goal—a banquet of business success.

Create a Succession Plan

Running a business without having a plan for succession is like finding your way in a dark cave without a light. It is possible, but the results could be disastrous. The goal of any business is to remain in business and to do that the business must be led by the right people with the right skills and behavioral styles. Succession planning is a process that follows a series of steps to identify what traits are required in leaders, which individuals possess those characteristics, and how to optimize their unique career paths. The health and longevity of any business depends upon who will be the next generation of leaders. You simply cannot afford to leave it to chance.
