Recently we got some HR people in to help us improve our professional development program at MedRecruit.
In a workshop they were running I realised that they were making a fundamental flaw; they were creating job descriptions individually and without a master plan.
I stopped work on the JDs and we started work on the organisational plan whilst considering Major Areas of Responsibility for each role.
The power of the master design is that we can:
Ensure everything is covered
Create consistency across the organisation meaning that we can have a streamlined professional development program
Communicate how each role fits into the organisation
I am loving it.
If you don’t have a clear target in anything, STOP.
Paint the target, not generally, but in detail.
Then do what you need to move towards it.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
I used to be all about winning at everything I was involved with.
