Is your business structure working against your strategy or supporting it?

Let me explain. If you think of your strategy as the plan to achieve your goals, the structure is the framework that supports it. Trying to fit a round strategy into a square structure just won’t work. In fact, it works against your strategy, undermining your leadership and moving you farther away from your goals.

Take hiring talent, as an example. You want to hire the very best and brightest to move your business to the next level, a smart strategy. However, business owners think they need to do whatever it takes to compete for the top talent, often promising new hires too much, the wrong structure.

The problem is that the business itself lacks the leadership structure to maximize newly hired talent. Because you gave them too much to begin with, you end up with a revolving door of entitled people who have nothing to lose by moving on because they were given everything instead of having to earn it.

This is where your human resource structure can support your talent attraction strategy. By designing a human resource program that allows them to earn their way into elusive executive club, their motivation is aligned with your corporate strategy, not with their own self-interest.
