Taking an active role in developing your team demonstrates confidence and concern for the organization’s future.
It also gives employees feelings of significance, community and value.
When you create a culture in which employees can reach their goals and know their thoughts and insights are appreciated, you boost productivity, morale and engagement.
Put these six tips into practice to help employees grow:
1. Encourage professional development. High-potential employees are not satisfied with the status quo. If given the proper guidance in their development, they will become the future leaders of your organization.
2. Create a development plan. Help your employees establish goals that are aligned with their strengths, interest and experience, as well as with the overall business strategy. Establish goals and expectations to help them set their sights on career opportunities.
