The Professional Deal Approach

Good organisations aim to build a positive environment in which motivated people can achieve peak performance. They also communicate the organisation’s purpose, principles and picture of success.

They then give people chance to reflect on whether they want to contribute. If so, they make clear contracts with individuals about their best contributions towards achieving the goals.

Such organisations also explain the professional deal. This describes both the organisation’s responsibilities and the individual’s responsibilities in working to achieve the goals.

The world of work continues to change so it is important to be honest when communicating the deal. People can then decide if they want to opt in. Here are some themes organisations may cover when communicating the deal. You will, of course, do this in your own way.

Imagine that you work for an organisation. On a scale 0-10, to what extent do you believe it communicates the professional deal to people?

What do you think you or it can do: a) to communicate the organisation’s responsibilities; b) to communicate the individual’s responsibilities; c) to make sure everybody is clear on the deal?

Looking ahead, can you think of a situation where you may want to follow elements of the professional deal approach? How can you do this in your own way?
