Manage episode 288599600 series 2811482
In this episode of Truth Serum Laide Abel and I discuss her new book 'People as Assets: Building High-Performance Teams'. Naturally, I was interested in the book because I saw "People As Assets". I know for a fact that most organizations in Nigeria are yet to fully understand how to treat their people like the assets they really are.
Laide provides her insights about mental capital in the workplace, how people can be engaged and valued as assets and what managers need to do to get their teams engaged.
Laide explains the concept of T_POTT (The Philosophy of The Thing) and how it applies to every area of life (very interesting).
She talks about the possibility of doing one's work, not just because of the organization but because YOU the individual, believe that level of excellence is your way of being (wow!)
We also discussed the value of assessment centres for getting employees who are the right fit for the organisation and the need to set (and communicate) very clear targets.
