The Discipline of People

Your People Are Key to Your Company’s Stability

A company that lacks stability in this discipline:

  • is often distrusted by its staff;
  • struggles to find the right people to hire;
  • lacks clarity in defining the organization’s roles;
  • has a team that works to the absolute required minimum.

An organization that is stable in this discipline has:

  • high employee morale;
  • a very high staff retention rate;
  • customers and employees who are treated with the same respect.

So, the first thing to understand is that, as a leader of business, you don’t build your business, you develop your people, and they build the business. When CEOs get this right, everything flows from there. The second thing is that exceptional people build excellent companies. The third thing is that the People discipline is all about the stability of an organization.

Examples of the Discipline of People in Action

Marriott International Inc

Marriott International Inc. understands that people are the foundation of a stable business because without the right people there is no business. And the people at Marriott have built a company with more than 6,500 properties in 127 countries and territories around the world, and revenues of more than $22 billion in the fiscal year 2017.

In 1927, J. Willard Marriott founded his company on this idea: take good care of the associates, and they’ll take care of the guests.

Marriott is an organization that is known as both a great place to work and a great place to stay.

At Marriott, a general manager’s average length of service is 25 years, exceeding the industry standard. Of the 361,000 people who work there, some 10,600 have more than 20 years of service. Marriott has also been consistently named one of Fortune’s best companies to work for.
