I lay in bed last night completely elated. I had embarked on a new adventure just three weeks previous and become part of a new team.  In such a short amount of time, the impact my colleagues had had on me was invaluable. I felt valued, confident in what I was doing and excited to learn from them.

The point I’m trying to make is that true honest happiness often resonates from the people in your life. You are after all “the average of the five people you spend the most time with”.

If you are working alongside colleagues with a great energy, positive attitude and strong focus, you naturally perform better. You will be your best self when you are encouraging your team members to be their best selves and vice versa.

Hence why it’s key to get the right fit when you’re recruiting. And when you’ve hired the right team, to lead them in the best way possible. That way, your team thrives and your business thrives.

It’s about having open and honest conversations and more importantly, an alignment of vision and values. So it begs the question, how clear are you making your vision and values when you’re recruiting? How clear are you making them to your existing team?

As someone who can hand on heart vouch for the recruitment process I myself undertook with ActionCOACH Black Country, it works. It works really really well.

How do I know? Because I’m doing the job I signed up for. The job I grafted to get. And my manager has the right candidate with the right attitude, shared values and a clear idea of the vision for the business.

The method is thorough, authentic and quite honestly, it’s confusing to me why everyone is not recruiting this way.

This is just one element of the ActionCOACH Black Country education. One tool in a plethora of tools that form an educational toolkit that helps drive success and produce great results.
