these bus guys...and what do they do?
You're likely familiar with our metaphor, "Get the right people on your bus...and get them in the right seats!" Well, we much more than a metaphor. The
Bus Concept™ is a company devoted to the analysis of predictive performance.
We've discovered what are reliable performance predictors...and what are not.
We have married Nobel Peace prize nominated "how the human business
brain works" research with structural guidelines and tactics that enable
our clients to exercise and apply these powerful insights to the key
staffing elements of selection, executive development, and team design. In
summary, we've discovered a highly reliable 4 step formula that defines superior
performance! We can show you how to use it to measure your candidates and incumbents and how to optimize
and leverage what you discover to power up your organization!
How does this process work?
What our clients really want to know is WHO will make the most right bright decisions on a regular basis? That's where our 4 Step Performance Matrix changes the game.
success is directly tied to the actions we take. If we take good
actions...good things follow. If we take poor actions, then success tends
to elude us. Understand that EVERY action is PRECEDED by a decision to take that action. So, if we could
ACCURATELY MEASURE the QUALITY of anyone's decision making process that
drives the actions they take and calculate those actions vs. a client's business models
of Management, Sales, Administrative or Customer Service...we could present you with the KEY to predicting
success. We have that key...and we'd like to share it with you! It
turns out that there are really 4 Critical keys that integrate to provide the
answers all business leaders want and need to know. We call it the Performance Matrix. Here
are the 4 steps that drive performance:
Performance Matrix Step One: Critical Thinking Skills
Critical Thinking Skills measure 3 major decision making capacities (It is the ability to PERCEIVE the core issues of the problems, challenges and opportunities one encounters, the ability to CONCEIVE a workable solution to those issues, and the ability to RESOLVE/IMPLEMENT the conceived solution to the perceived problems,
challenges, & opportunities within the organization's available resources i.e., time, money, & manpower etc.
Performance Matrix Step Two: FOCUS of the Critical Thinking Skills
is how one goes about IMPLEMENTING his/her critical thinking skills
decisions/choices. There are 9 separate focal pathways that the human
mind uses to create order and get things done. We can measure the
individual's hierarchy of pathways and identify if it is a Primary, Secondary,
or Inconsistent focus for the individual. Focus defines how one
APPROACHES the resolution/implementation of the problems, challenges and
opportunities they encounter.
Performance Matrix Step Three: Natural Behaviors
Natural Behaviors define HOW we deliver our focused critical thinking into the world. This gold standard DISC component defines how one interacts with others as they seek to implement their conceived solutions to the perceived problems, challenges and opportunities. While behaviors alone are NOT predictive...they prove to be a powerful contributor to the overall performance matrix that we
know predicts performance.
Performance Matrix Step Four: Environmental Factors
The Environmental factor component measures if the "conditions for success" are in place for any individual in any environment. One might be successful in one environment but struggle in another. Remember, that Michael Jordan struggled as a minor league baseball player...but returned to the basketball court and won another world championship. The importance of the "conditions
of success" being in place should never be overlooked or underestimated.
- Subjective Conditions for Success:
Does the individual have the education, background, experience, track record of documentable results, references, job stability, and face to face interviewing feedback that you are seeking? If so, then we proceed with the objective steps that follow.
- Objective Conditions for Success:
Will this individual "fit" with who
will be his/her manager? We use a revolutionary and highly reliable measurement of the personal chemistry dynamic (team synergy) that will likely exist between
any two individuals. We compare the compatibility of their respective critical
thinking skills, the aligned or misaligned focus of those critical thinking skills and their natural
behaviors that deliver the critical thinking into the organization. If you ever worked for a manager you could not synch
with...one of these 3 factor misalignments was the probable cause.
It's OK to be Skeptical...We'll be happy to prove it to you.
