Shoot for the Stars: Create Superstars Part 1

A foundational element of the Ready, Set, Engage Path is creating an organization of people in the right place doing the right job.  This doesn’t come by accident; it is premeditated.  The first step is deciding to shoot for the stars. So what do you do after you have decided to create an organization of superstars that is envied by peers and clients?  Create a plan to get there.   In designing your superstar team, there are six pillars for success.  Successfully implementing these strategies positions you for triumph on the Ready, Set, Engage Path. We will just look at three of them in this post.        

Pillar 1: Develop a process for mentoring new members of your organization.
Even if people have been in the organization for years; establish a weekly schedule to meet with them. This allows one-on-one communication of the mission statement and your expectations.

Pillar 2: Utilize expertise acquired by staff members expertise acquired in previous positions. Have them be the mentor for that subject area both internal to your department and other departments.  This strategy allows people to continue to use acquired skill and starts to create an organization of leaders. 

Pillar 3: Find ways to creative positive exposure for staff.
As a leader part of your responsibility is to market your employees so they are seen as a valuable asset beyond your “four walls”.


Until next time,  Stephanie
