Peter Mohan has spent over 15 years working with leaders and teams in a wide range of business sectors, the power of 3 has shown up repeatedly. The power of 3 is used in all sorts of ways in our daily lives. The power of 3 is used in all sorts of ways in our daily lives.
For both individuals and teams, once you have clarity on PURPOSE and desired RESULTS, day-to-day performance is down to the interplay between three elements as set out below:
When I am brought into an organisation to help a client to address a performance problem, I get curious about the level of shared understanding re PURPOSE and desired RESULTS. Then I move on to the elements in this simple model which I call the Engine Room of Performance. This approach applies both with individuals and with teams. If there is a common understanding of Purpose and Desired Results, then the above triangle serves as a simple diagnostic reference. In essence, the three questions are:
- Do people KNOW what is expected of them in their roles?
- CAN people carry out their roles?
- Do people WANT to carry out their roles?
Exploring these questions with clients can be very illuminating. The answers can point the way to simple changes that can enable improved performance as well as greater personal satisfaction for people as they carry out their roles. This creates successful outcomes for both the individuals involved and for the organisation.
If you are looking to enable change at an individual or a team or an organisational level, and you want to explore how best you might do that, please contact David Duggan by email firstname.lastname@example.org or 086-1027955.
