Human Performance Analytics: Peer Sharpening

Adults · Learning
This class is one in a four-part Human Performance Analytics series that explores Next Jump's unique insights on Human Performance data. With over 15 years of performance data (the largest dataset of its kind) we've been able to identify key differentiators between exceptional and average decision-makers. Our approach uses a quantitative lens rather than relying on subjective judgments to assess decision-making capabilities. Key attributes of high performers include: /1/ Self & Situational Awareness: High performers generally exhibit strong self and situational awareness. Our data reveals a strong negative correlation; individuals with low awareness tend to be the weakest decision-makers within a team. This resonates with many of us who have found it frustrating to work with people lacking self or situational awareness. /2/ Risk-taking and Resilience: High performance, especially in uncertain and ambiguous situations, necessitates taking risks. To counteract our natural fear of failure, it is crucial to become comfortable with the oscillation between receiving negative feedback (struggle) and positive feedback (success). This cycle is often what sets successful individuals and teams apart from those that avoid failure, thereby negate the opportunity for success. /3/ Peer Sharpening: This skill transforms "experience" into "expertise." It involves actively seeking honest, critical feedback from peers to refine your ideas. Experts are aware of their past mistakes, willingly expose them to trusted colleagues, and continuously work on improving themselves and addressing their blind spots. We've developed data indicators to track peer sharpening activity, helping team members enhance their skills. /4/ Team Expectations: We've found that performance is a team effort rather than a solo endeavor. High performers are not only self-motivated but are also held to high standards by those around them. The saying "you are the sum of the people you work closely with" holds true, and we see this in the data.
