I consider an organization a living structure, composed of an intricate and dynamic relationship between humans and systems. To ensure an efficient and consistent forward motion, every person in their respective position has to be in the right seat. Having the right people in the right seats is critical to any organization’s success.
So, how do you ensure the right person in the right seat?
First of all, he/she has to be in alignment with the organization’s values and culture. Placing the right person in the right seat is a combination of the person’s qualification and his/her keenness for the role. The position has to be within the person’s Zone of Genius.
Here are things to look out for in your existing employees: Are they happy with where they are? Are flourishing in their position? Are they doing the work that fuels them?
