Enthusiastically rehire? Equals A Players!

How many people on your team would you enthusiastically rehire? As a leader looking to build a culture of A Players, the answer to this question determines which members of your team are A Players. Team members that you would not enthusiastically rehire are by default B and C Players.

All employees have the right to be A Players somewhere. The question is if that “somewhere” is your business or department, or outside your organization.

Let your team know you are moving to a culture of 100% A Players over the course of 6 months. Draft an A Player Agreement to define A Player performance for each position. Review these agreements face-to-face with each employee. Let each know where they stand relative to being an A, B, or C Player, and draft individual development plans for each. Make executive coaching resources available to them to accelerate performance.

Finally, as the leader, are you playing at an A Player level? In many cases, the leader raising his or her game is the quickest way to raise the performance level of the team!
