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.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
