The 7 Samurais of self-evaluation
Moinak Mitra, Outlook Money | January 11, 2007
You've racked your brains far too long to plumb where you belong in your organisation. Here's the mantra to swim with the sharks on a whim.
If the '9-Blocker Model' sounds straight out of Legoland, try picking up the pieces through 2007. Because that's how your company would perhaps be rating you at work all year long.
Based on the model's twin performance and potential axis, you'll be graded as either a high, medium or low performer at your workplace.
As India Inc. takes to the model like fish to water, we provide a rough cut of the prototype. You'll be seeing more of the 9-Blocker at work -- it may even pop up before your screen quarter-on-quarter as a reminder of who you are in office.
"Companies such as GE, Ranbaxy and HLL have already got their staff acquainted with the 9-Blocker," says Ajai Dayal, senior director, consulting, CHR Global.
In the meantime, your HR department would be busy providing solutions across multiple touchpoints depending on where you belong on the 9-Blocker grid.
And these dimensions could be as varied as job design, competencies, compensation and succession.
Now rank yourself along with a model questionnaire devised by CHR Global Consultants -- seven Qs to see where you stand in 2007.
