How to transform employees into #owners?

In our last Quared Live Session, we shared our wildest dream: a world where every employee acts like an owner and, as such, helps their company achieve its purpose. A world where companies and employees not only exchange time for money, but also share a set of values and purpose and build a partnership based on mutual value. A world of communities (common + unity), not of businesses (busy + ness). A world where we all make a life, not a living.

 

To achieve such dream, we believe companies need to abandon its old management model, and embrace a new one. One that is adapted to the Information Age. One based in outputs, creativity, freedom, empowerment and the reciprocity principle – You get what you give; if you want your employees to care about your company, care about them.

 

The new model is based on 3 key steps that we’ve summarized in the #GetQuared framework (and yes! We will cover each block in detail in the following sessions!)

STEP 1: #OwnerDiscovery. Figure out who you are and what you need

  • Purpose: Ask yourself how you add value to society. Focus on the need that won’t change
  • Values: Understand what values & behaviours determine your success. Want to build movies? You need creativity
  • Core capabilities: As Aristotle said, you can’t be the best at everything, but you can be the best at anything. This is how Decathlon approached it

STEP 2: #OwnerHiring. Attract the right candidates. Hire the right partners

  • Employer branding: People want a good salary, yes. But they want much more. Build your brand by leveraging your Employee Value Proposition
  • Inbound recruitingCommunicate your Employer Brand. Build the sexiest career page and job offers, in short: apply Marketing to Recruiting!
  • Predictive & relational hiring: Build partnerships based on mutual value. Predict future job performance with a combination of structure & data

STEP 3: #OwnerManagement. Enable performance & ownership

  • Emergent leadership: As simple as “Stop championing yourself. Champion your team”. Guide your leaders towards outputs and facilitation
  • Talent-centric learningLearn from people, not classrooms. Build a learning ecosystem through mentoring, feedback & Peer-to-peer learning
  • Impact communication: Communicate impact, in a personalized way. Give voice to your staff and make them count. Leverage platforms.
  • Power governance: Build small, self-sufficient, agile and customer-obsessed Squads that can act in a nimble and empowered way. Ask Spotify!

We discussed all of the above in our last Quared Live Session!
