How are your people developed?

  • Ask for their goals for their development. Demonstrate you have heard them, by giving opportunities to improve.
  • Assign full responsibility, not just tasks.
  • They already “know” what they need to know. Understand that they now learn to do, by doing.
  • Have them give peer feedback. Have them receive peer feedback. Offer “one on one” feedback for improvement in private.
  • Give opportunities to lead others.
  • Surround them with high achieving people who expect the best from them.
  • Spaced repetition of information – the basis of all learning.
  • Stretch them with varied assignments. Give opportunity to serve others in the group, and the public.
  • Try not to look surprised week after week as they grow, right before your eyes.
  • Act humble when awarded the “Boss of the Year” coffee mug by your loyal team.
