Let’s start with two incredibly important definitions:
Mental Optimization – The right mental operating system to perform as efficiently and effectively as possible toward your current mission
Human Capital – The mindset, ability, and characteristics of everyone in any business, including anyone who plays a part in helping you accomplish your goals
Understanding these two terms and their definitions is core to this philosophy. The goal is to help organizations create the right collective mental environment and processes to execute on their mission and vision. What would it look like if work teams were driven and passionate about creating immense value for the business? It does not matter what the business does, what product is being sold, or the service offered; it is the people who drive and ultimately make the business thrive. If that is the truth, what can be done to make sure human capital is mentally optimized in a constant state of peak performance?
Everyone from executives to anyone directly interacting with customers can work together to foster an environment that supports growth, learning, and value. It is also crucial to aim at more fulfillment, not just more productivity. How engaged are we in creating value? What does that mean to the team? What is each individual’s definition of success? Is it aligned with the teams? Fulfilled employees stay longer and attract the most loyal customers, and often time fulfillment comes from the alignment of values and knowing you did a job well done.
The most important resource for any company is their employees. It can oftentimes, be difficult to find new team members for specific roles. In today’s competitive environment wouldn’t it make sense for a business to do everything possible to nurture and foster the growth of the good people they already have? One of the biggest reasons companies won’t invest in the success of their human capital is a misconception about the return on their investment. Let’s take a moment to actually look at those numbers:
· Highly engaged teams produce at 21% greater profitability across industries
· Disengaged employees cost U.S. companies an estimated $550 billion in potential profits
· Those who are not engaged report doing the minimum required, are emotionally disconnected to the company, and are ready to move on for an even slightly better offer.
· Higher engagement in a company is associated with a 24.5% larger share price growth when lower engagement is compared. When employees believe in the product, share price growth nearly doubles to 51%
· When effective developmental elements are in place employee engagement jumps to 74%.
· The mean return on investing in leadership coaching was 7 times the initial investment.
· Workers who are aware of their strengths routinely increase their sales by 19% and generate up to 29% more profits.
· Of those who have received manager coaching, 80% say their work performance, productivity, and communication skills have improved.
Those statistics all make a rather compelling case. Many businesses would traditionally use systems, processes, and SOP’s, which are fantastic for just what they aim to accomplish, but too many times, businesses forget it takes humans to actually implement those plans. People are not robots who can just follow an algorithm to operate. Now more than ever, human capital needs to be optimized to better adapt to change, handle adversity, and create value.
Many programs aim to improve these areas but fall short because they fail to take a holistic approach with a skilled, motivating servant leader who will work deeply with people to drastically improve results.
