In last week's episode, we discussed a simple tool for measuring expertise - the journey from Unconscious Incompetence (where you're useless, but you don't know it) through to Unconscious Competence (where you're awesome, and take it for granted).
It was a journey that went through Inspiration, Education, and Execution, and it's excellent for objectively assessing how skillful you or one of your team are in a particular area.
This week we add steroids to the concept: how do we measure ALL of the skills your business needs, across ALL of your team members?
Because if you can do that, then you can build an annual training plan that effortlessly addresses overall business needs. You can push responsibility for skill development back on to individual team members. And you can design a career path through your organisation (and your industry) based on the growing capability an individual acquires - or can acquire, with the right training plan.
Naturally, the coloured chalk comes into play as well.
In 12 years of business coaching, personalising and completing Training Needs Analyses remains one of the most fun and valuable projects I undertake with my clients.
Take 5 minutes each week to focus on your business instead of dealing with the demands of working in it.
