Talent Score - Quantifying Your Team’s Talent

(10/25/2012)What is the collective talent score for your organization? Can you measure how strong or weak your team is today? Is there a way to mathematically know whether you are growing or contracting your collective talent? Until now, most organizations simply never measured talent. Organizations measure results and turnover, but have no clue why these results are achieved. These same companies rely on classical human resource techniques to attract and hire talent, but never measure the impact from gaining or losing talent in a collective sense. They rely on systems and processes but never quantify the individual talent that executes for the organization. Remarkably, this lack of talent quantification has never really been discussed as necessity for organizational success. Consider systems and process as one side of the coin while a talent score represents the other side. Executives examine balance sheets and yet they never see talent sheets.

Bad Supervisors and Body Odor

By John Grubbs


The olfactory nerve is one of a pair of nerves that are responsible for our sense of smell.  Olfactory fatigue, also known as odor fatigue, is the temporary, normal inability to distinguish a particular odor after a prolonged exposure to that airborne compound.  When it comes to body odor from absent or poor hygiene, individuals may be completely unaware of the strong environmental contribution they are making for others around them.  While everyone else around this individual gets to share the odor, the person responsible is completely oblivious to the stench.  While certainly a necessity prior to modern hygiene standards, there are people today that do not realize or simply do not care about the aroma they exude for the rest of us.  They cannot smell it so how can anyone else?

Similarly, most supervisors do not show up at work and consciously intend to be a bad supervisor.  They must have developed some sort of leadership fatigue in order to “not” realize the horrible impact they are making on everyone around them.

My Time to Lead Series 

Making the transition to leader is not easy and it is certainly not natural. Yet
most companies invest little to nothing preparing new leaders for their new
role. This often results in poor morale and higher turnover since many
people just replicate what they have seen in the past. This leadership "gap"
is prevalent in most companies. Our new and updated leadership series
prepares leaders for this new role. Our 3-day leadership series
(non-consecutive days) includes an 86 page work book and a copy of
“Listen Up Leader”.
We cover leadership essentials such as:
• Making the leap from co-worker to supervisor
• Learn the difference between communication and effective communication
• Differentiate between accountability and blame
• Set goals to communicate accountability as a supervisor
• Recognize the essential nature of trust
• Create an environment that promotes trust in the workplace
