Do you feel that life is a treadmill some days?
And staying in the same place gets more difficult because the treadmill gets faster?
This is because life is exactly like that – progress, competition and accelerating change. If you think you can do nothing and maintain position, pretty soon you will be spat off the back of the treadmill.
The Importance of Employee Growth and Development
This is why improving the skills of your staff and developing their capabilities is one of the 5 things that every manager must do. It’s not a nice to have. It’s vital for long-term survival.
Developing your staff is where you take on the role of coach and “send your staff to gym” so they can keep up on the treadmill.
So next time you feel that the treadmill is wearing you down, Keep Calm and Get Faster.
What is the Manager Foundation take on this? You don’t have to spend a lot of time training your staff. You don’t even need to be the subject matter expert. You work with your staff to:
- Work out what they need to get better at and
- What exercises they need to do to get there
And then you help to keep them on track. A super time-efficient and effective technique that engages your staff members is what we show you in DEVE101 – Developing you staff.
