How engaged and challenged your team members feel will directly affect how well they perform. A victory for you and your organization as well as for your team will emerge from providing them with broader skill sets, better training techniques, and a clearer strategy for addressing their career aspirations.
Encourage, Don’t Just Solve.
How involved and challenged your team members feel has a direct impact on their performance. If your team has broader skill sets, better training techniques, and a more defined strategy to handling their career objectives, you will see immediate improvements in their production, making it a win for you and your organization in addition to them.
Delegating will not only free up your time so you can focus on other things, but it will also offer your staff members an opportunity to shine. For instance, they could take a little different approach to the work than you would, or they might even come up with a whole new, more effective method. In either case, this is how your staff members will learn, and you can always offer assistance and advise along the route if necessary.
Monitor Performance and Feedback.
It’s apparent that the idea of “feedback” has value, despite the fact that it has evolved into something of a buzzword in business circles. It provides a clear framework and direction for an employee’s growth to frequently sit down with them and talk about what they have done well and where they may improve, whether formally or informally.
It takes more than a few token attempts at mentorship or the occasional training session to develop personnel. The very best managers value their staff members highly and put their growth and happiness ahead of all other job requirements.
