A Comprehensive Approach to Developing A High Performing Organization

Hiring and developing the right people is possibly the single greatest challenge for organizations today.  You need to put the right people in the right jobs and give them the necessary tools to succeed.  You also need to develop effective leaders and teams and build a culture that allows for innovation and creativity all while achieving the vision and mission of the organization.  

Cape Fear Partners, (CFP) provides a comprehensive approach to developing high performing individuals and teams.  We work with our clients to effectively evaluate, hire and integrate new employees into the organization.   We also help develop your existing team into a more cohesive and higher performing group.  Our talent evaluation and development capabilities are useful at any level within the organization.

Recruiting and Hiring:  The best way to hire the right personnel is to have a clearer understanding of the specific characteristics and capabilities you will need today and in the future.  We help clients uncover the true needs of the organization through a collaborative process that leads to a data-driven Job Benchmark Report of the ideal employee candidate.  The Job Benchmark Report is used during the interview process.  It describes the competencies, motivators and behaviors of the ideal candidate.  It also recommends specific interview questions to ask that will uncover the key characteristics needed by your organization.  If you can get the right person using our approach, why would you ever do it the old fashion way?

On-Boarding and Assimilation:  There is an old-school mindset that says, “drop new employees in the deep end of the pool and see if they can swim”.  Or, give them a basic orientation of the tasks of the job and let them get to work.  Our approach is different.  We want to maximize your new employees’ chances of success while also accelerating the time it takes for them to become an effective member of the team. We work with the employee and manager to create an orientation program focused on providing the information and tools necessary for success.  We also create mutual understanding and expectation of the employee’s progress.  When expectations are aligned the odds of success accelerate.

Education and Development:  CFP believes that the most valuable resource in every organization are the people.  If you are a high-tech organization or a simple metal bender, success requires having competent, skilled and motivated employees.  Given the rapidly changing demands within organizations, you need to focus on expanding the capabilities of your senior leaders, managers and employees.  Having a workforce with diverse skills allows them to better adapt to shifting job requirements.  We help our clients strategize and define the current and future needs of the organization.  Then we develop customized training and team-building programs that support high performance.

Performance Development:  Where will the future leaders of your organization come from?  This is an ongoing challenge for organizations as they grapple with the retirement of the Baby Boom generation and the emergence of Millennials and Generation Z.  CFP brings the experience to assist the organization develop programs and models to assist your organization in building the leadership competency and capacity so you are ready for the future.  This can be especially effective with family generational succession.  Please ask us for more details.
