Four Decisions: People

4D People Icon_v7.18 Of the Four Decisions®, none is more vexing to most leaders than the People Decision. Scaling a successful enterprise requires that you attract, retain and engage the head, hands and heart of the best people. As Jim Collins famously remarked, “You can’t build a great company with good people.”

So, how are you doing in this area? Is everyone in your company pulling their own weight and contributing as they should? If you had to start the company all over tomorrow, would you enthusiastically rehire everyone on your team? Are you looking to improve productivity? Do you want to create leaders at all levels of your organization?

We have the tools to make sure that you attract, retain and fully engage the right people, doing the right things, for the right reasons.

To get a sense of how the People Decision can transform your organization, consider the example provided by Capt. L. David Marquet,  commanding officer of the nuclear attack submarine, USS Santa Fe (SSN-763). USS Santa Fe

In his book, “Turn the Ship Around” (, Capt. Marquet describes how he received orders to take command of a multi-billion dollar warship that ranked LAST in virtually every category important to the U.S. Navy. Click on the link below to learn how Capt. Marquet created a Leader-Leader culture aboard the Santa Fe. What you won’t hear on the clip (but you definitely should know) is the legacy of Capt. Marquet’s work: because of the principles he employed, 10 of his officers were selected to command their own submarines, over 3 times the Navy’s average.

People decisions matter. A lot! We’ll help you create leaders at every level so that everyone in your organization is driving success.
