Basic principles

Claim your compensation

The production loop elements included choosing, planning, identifying, delivering and claiming.

To identify and claim your slice of the results is an enriching experience in many ways. You learn what others think and you get more money!

Use the team help processes as in the performance management system of Next S. (Ask for the performance review process from Next S human development.)

Gather information:

You gather the information similar to a practical “Portfolio of evidence”.

It is discussed in the team, agreement is reached and the pie is sliced. The money is paid. CONCLUDED!

In case of differences we grow even faster by getting external views and expertise. The external uninvolved person listens, integrates to interactively give a considered solution. Typically we agree at this time.  CONCLUDED!

Should we not agree, each party get their own expertise, they listen and ask again. The three makes a final decision.  CONCLUDED!

While this exiting learning experience runs, we can already work together since the challenge moved external.

  • List your key personal passions and interests
  • Look at the past year and try to identify and describe definitive growth and performance.
  • What are your current task opportunities in the projects?
  • Industry fit: It is necessary to ascertain your position, task and goals in relation to the industry requirement.

Search for jobs that more or less describe what you are doing, or what you think you can do / want to do.  The jobs you find might be in a different industry, but the job description itself fits your skills and you can apply it in any industry.

  • Make use of jobsites
  • Put your CV up at a job search site or with a recruiter.  Go for interviews!  This is a great way of ascertaining your industry worth.
  • Especially if you are considering a mid life career change

Get the name of the position, the approximate earnings, the job responsibilities and requirements for the following questions.

4.1  Find out what growth areas are important to you (You will find this out only when you make contact).

What of the above industry related responsibilities are important for you and for growth in your job?  What other areas are important that is not mentioned in your newfound knowledge?  Discuss this with the group working with you and/or your team members.

4.2  Find out what skills and industry knowledge you need.  What are your gaps?  Make a list of the competencies and people you require.

4.3  What is your industry worth?

  • Actions:  How would your company compensate in money, personal growth and possible participation in greater returns?

Align with the company and customer for maximum career growth

But I’m still not sure if I understand the concept of alignment well enough. Can you tell me more about it?
The process of alignment with the company and customer to obtain the maximum value addition and growth, entails the management of three important factors:
The “personal passions” of the individual. This refers to interests, skills and aptitudes of the individual at the time of recruitment.
The “company’s business needs” are to create wealth for all its stakeholders and to grow and develop its team members and employees to their maximum potential.
The “customers and their expectations” which in general are to obtain reliable and cost-effective products and services in order to satisfy the needs of the customer’s customers. Satisfying these expectations constitute the challenge and opportunity for our company to build our business.
The ideal is to strive to maximize the area of overlap of the customer, your company, and the individual.
The concept of alignment can be explained as follows:
The individual employee brings talents, knowledge and skills into the company. The customer has a need for products and services. The company has systems and processes in place directed at bringing its products and services to the customer.
With an increased communication of yourself, your team and the company, you can identify what value you can add in achieving the company’s goals and objectives and what changes you need to make in order to be most effective in your job.
The company exists because of customer needs. The individual contributes talents, knowledge and skills to the system and processes of the company. The main focus of business is the arena of overlap between the individual, the company and the customer.
Now I see…to grow your contribution you need to understand:
Your needs and skills growth
The company’s dynamics
The customer’s dynamics and needs
In order to align ourselves with the company and customers, each of us has to look into our behavioral patterns, response models, values and drivers. This will become clearer as we proceed.
