If You’re Not Helping People Develop, You’re Not Management Material

In an article for Harvard Business Review, Monique Valcour insists that facilitating employee learning and development be a “non-negotiable” part of a manager’s duties. As such, getting the “best” out of your team should mean getting the best out for both you and the employee. In order to do this, Valcour says to share a comprehensive view of the business, its direction, and its challenges with employees. Furthermore, during projects, actually ask employees about the new areas in which they might like to learn and expand their skills. In general, make discussions about career goals a semi-regular event so that you can keep providing work that helps employees to grow in the ways that they desire.
