Otherwise known as your skills gap!
✔ It's critical to be honest with yourself about your skill gaps if you want to lead a successful team or organisation.
So, how do you go about conducting a skills gap analysis?
1. Make a list of the abilities and attributes required for success.
2. Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest.
Loads of my clients have really struggled with recruiting good people recently.
Whereas pre-covid they’d get 30 decent applicants, nowadays they are lucky to get a couple. If that, in some cases! One business owner I spoke to recently said he’d started the recruitment process with a huge list of essential & desirable skills but would now be happy with just about anyone!
(I did remind him about the age-old wisdom - never fill a hole with an a#%hole! That’s never good for business!)
Anyhoo… it got us on to the subject of “is it time to invest in underperforming team members rather than struggle to recruit new ones?”
