Organizational Success Criteria
Before applying to work in this prestigious organization, we expect you to consider the following criteria against which you will be measured, if you eventually are selected to work at this organization.
- The success of your co-workers and sub-ordinates has a great impact on your evaluation – At this organization we believe that the measure of how much of a high flyer you are is dependent on the success of your co-workers. We believe that if we employ you as a leader, we do not just expect you to excel but that your excellence is portrayed in the excellence of the people that report to you and work with you on a daily basis. Like a footballer, no matter how skillful or talented a striker you are, the success of the entire team in winning trophies has an impact on your own success. As it is very well put in the movie Drumline, ‘One Band, One Sound’.
- We serve no notices – We do not believe in giving forward notices about occurrences that are about to happen. Occurrences like when an opportunity to be promoted or excel will come, when a curve ball will be thrown at you and you have a choice to catch it and run or dodge it and pretend as though nothing was sent your way. Like the Boy’s Scout motto, we expect you to always be prepared.
- You determine the height of your success – In this organization, how far up the ladder you want to go solely depends on you. You are not limited by gender, race, age or background. We believe that you are first of all, the captain of you and all that’s necessary for you to succeed lies in you.
Whether you realize it or not, you are currently work at this organization. This organization is life, and the success criteria we have shared are a few things you must realize to become a successful leader.
