Hello MT and followers,
I'd like to request help in crafting a message regarding the relative value an organization places on people time. I recall hearing Mark talk about this eloquently in a podcast years ago, though I haven't been able to find his message in my MT website search.
What methods have people used to share this message in a way that avoids offening people?
For some backstory, I've heard some third party feedback that individuals are drawing a conclusion that their time is viewed as less valuable than my own, from a couple recent choices I made regarding a set of interviews. I want to be able to communicate our org places relative values on our time, while we also see each individual as highly valuable and important to our team.
We values ideas/feedback regardless of who they arise from, while also ascribing relative value of people's time. In practice this means we evaluate ideas and feedback from interns and from senior team members, and spend time responding to them all. We also value the CEO's time more highly than any others time in the org, and that scales between levels/roles in the company (reflected in both salaries and bill rates).
I'm also curious if the MT crew and community approach this differently than I've described, and if they do, why.
Thank you for your time,
