People Development

"talent is the most valuable asset in an organization."

Executive leadership is about being a generalist & hiring specialists. Therefore, the role of a manager is not to do the job of 100 men, but to get 100 men to do the job of 100 men (while being fiscally responsible of course); essentially always working to activate the leadership of others for the benefit of the whole.

In my work, I have found myself asking more questions than providing answers. Things to consider...

  • What were the career aspirations of your staff before you hired them? Have those changed?

  • What are the core skills required for them to maximize their impact in their role?

  • What does the next 5 years look like for them in your company? Who determines that?

  • What are they ultimately on the hook for?

  • What do your daily and weekly conversations sound like?
