Top Performer Profiling
A soaring unemployment rate due to the Coronavirus pandemic has left great talent in limbo and looking for work. For many, making the right hire with so many excellent candidates to choose from can be daunting as mistakes are costly.
So how do the best leaders select the right talent for their organisation when the market has shifted?
A crisis has a way of revealing what leadership really means and what organisations need in their leaders. It also reveals what employees require from their managers to be motivated, engaged, and focused on positive outcomes.
Astute leaders know that how they got their role initially won’t necessarily carry them through to continuing success. Faced with overwhelming challenges and expectations, they need to simultaneously produce short-term results and have the ability to see long-term possibilities.
Personality characteristics play an important role in individual and team performance. For those working remotely, personality plays an even more crucial role. With the loss of a structured routine, it’s easy to feel disconnected when you’re in one place and your co-workers are in another.
As a leader, you must ensure remote employees are not struggling with loneliness or feeling left out. To communicate meaningfully, you need to understand what makes each of them tick so you can build rapport and trust.
