Step 3 in “The 6 Steps to Becoming the LEADER of a Champion Organization:” A = Assess Your Champion Team

One thing the leaders of athletic teams do consistently better than business leaders is evaluating and managing talent. This step in the process to become the leader of a champion organization is about looking at your team members and assessing if they are in alignment with your new “Championship” approach.

All team members should be assessed for the following performance and attitudinal areas:

  • Do they have the “5 Traits of a CHAMP Team member?”
  • Is their performance contributing positively to the organization’s results or are they going along for the ride?
  • Are they in a position that maximizes their skills, knowledge, attitude, talents, education and experience (the SKATE model)
  • Is the position they are in put them in line to achieve their personal aspirations (are they working in their strengths)?
  • Are they performing to the expected standard (has the expected standard been clearly communicated and agreed upon)?
  • Do they need coaching, training, mentoring or counseling to be brought up to standard, if they are not already there?

Once that evaluation is completed the leader needs to re-assess the organization management flow chart and assess reporting responsibilities and see if it as effective as it can be, and to ensure the right people are in the right positions to maximize their strengths and be matched to the organization’s needs.

Then, the final step in this area is to identify a succession plan and begin working that plan to ensure those in line for positions in the organization are getting the development they need to be ready when the time comes.
