The Key to Smart Performance: Insights for '23

January 1, 2023
In every human cell, there are 23 pairs of chromosomes – which are packed with the information that makes you unique and what makes you – you.

If the past three years have taught us nothing else, we’ve learned the importance of the individual – individual voice, individual motivation, individual contribution, individual purpose, and individual performance. The events of the world have forced us to wake up and pay attention to individual construct. Yet, with the turning of a calendar year, we have a chance for new goals and a new focus. What does “23” have to offer us in light of economic and political uncertainty?

Consider for a moment that the number 23 signifies uniqueness, as seen with 23 pairs of chromosomes combined to define the unique attributes of each person.

In 2023, we can let the number 23 serve as a reminder that organizations can lean into the unique capabilities of each individual to align the individual capabilities to drive the organizational performance. This means taking a personalized approach to training, development, and overall motivation. Yet, leaders will need to lean into aligning the individual goals to the organizational needs. The sum is greater than the parts.

Technology trends in 2023 offer new initiatives to scale this approach so it feels authentic to the individual and impactful to the organizational goals.
