For the best results, match talent to job

What you need to know:

  • Many organisations are operating at only 20 per cent of their capacity because they remain startlingly inefficient at capitalising on the strengths of their people.
  • We cannot all be competent in almost anything because each person has unique and enduring talents and we are wired to do certain things, a fact that we need to appreciate.
  • Organisations that match the strengths of their employees to their day-to-day activities almost always outperform their peers and have low employee turnover and high customer satisfaction scores.
