In the next few weeks we will be kicking off the HDI Analyst of the Year Program which culminates with our local Awards Banquet to be held in December this year. Every year the HDI San Antonio Local Chapter recognizes our top local area Service Desk Analysts, Desktop Support Technicians and Managers. Local winners go on to compete nationally with the eventual winner being recognized at the HDI Conference.
I have been involved with the HDI Analyst of the Year program since 2010 and have have been an information technology leader for over 25 years. During this time it has been my privilege to engage some really great people. So just exactly what is it that sets these people apart?
- Integrity – Integrity is the foundation of any successful individual or team. Integrity builds trust. Trust empowers people. Empowered people propel teams to new heights and in new directions.
- Mission – A strong desire to serve the mission, mission first, is the lens that focuses the individual or team on the desired outcome, goals and objectives. Serving the mission aligns individual, team and organizational success and breeds a culture of “Doing the Right Thing”.
- Ownership – Ownership is the engine that powers people, teams and organizations to achieve phenomenal success. The level to which one owns the outcome is directly proportional to the degree of difficulty one is willing to overcome.
Now is the time to start thinking about who you are going to nominate from your team and why. Who on your team is the go to person. How that person, went above and beyond to overcome a difficult situation to achieve success.
Please feel free to share your thoughts on those qualities and attributes that make a top performer.
