The approach to organisational development advocated by management consultant Dave Anderson includes constantly upgrading through the right kind of recruiting and training. The goal is to create a team of all-stars. Training and development go hand-in-hand with accountability and enable staff to achieve higher levels of performance. In Up Your Business, author and management consultant Anderson outlined a step-by-step series of strategies for developing talent in the most effective way. The first is for the organisation to look at each individual's strengths. 'Make sure employees are in a position to use their gifts and talents. The only way an employee can be ultimately successful, and feel great about him or herself, is when they are doing work for which they are 'wired',' he said. It also pays to remember that everyone is different. 'Leaders must also learn what motivates each person as a unique individual, rather than try to motivate everyone the same way.' In order to be sure of recruiting the right staff in the first place, Anderson said it was important for managers to be proactive. Business people must become 'hunters', knowing where to find the best people and building a corporate culture that attracted and retained top employees. He added that recruitment managers should always try to turn one hire into two. This could be done by asking new recruits about other people at their former place of work, who were obviously very capable and might be looking for a move. Once the organisation has its all-star team in place, no challenge will seem too big for it to face.
