When it comes to performance and productivity, measurement is the word which pops ups. What about enablement?
Creating an environment to perform is the investment we need to make- measurement is an outcome.
Taking a cue from India’s participation and results in Olympics, the discussion is always on the number of medals not on building an ecosystem, which enables performance.
Similarly, in teams, today review conversions have superseded coaching conversations. Which leads to transactions, not value! The questions we have to ask -are we enabling performance of our team members or just measuring outcome?
At qilo, we did a work place culture study, wherein we asked people what does it take you to perform in an organisation. Two most important factors and dimensions, which came out, were alignment and coaching.
Clear direction, defined roles and continuous coaching and feedback enable performance. Critical areas we miss out in while driving and focusing on transactions.
Performance measurement is an output – Enablement is an input.
Focus on input outcome will definitely be great!
