What Your Team Needs from You – Development

By September 23, 2021Leadership

This is the second post in a series of posts about what every team wants from their leader. In the last post, we talked about the importance of communication — good communication. Without good communication, teams will break down. When a football breaks the huddle, they must have a clear understanding of what the next play will be.

Number Two – Develop Your Players

In most organizations, staff and employees represent one of their largest investments. In many, it will be their single largest line item. Yet in many organizations, leaders don’t spend much time investing in their top investment. In other words, they’re not actively developing the people around them.

In seems obvious, but a team member who is not growing will eventually slow down the growth of the organization. When a leader helps a team member improve their skills, everyone benefits. Output increases, attitudes improve, and people enjoy their work.

What does this kind of development look like?

  • Training
  • Encouragement
  • Giving employees new challenges
  • Mentoring
  • Autonomy
  • Modeling

Everyone person needs two types of people in their life: someone to believe in and someone who believes in them. When you’re actively developing your team, you’ll be that kind of person.

One of the things I enjoy the most is helping individuals or organizations reach their full potential.  It’s been said, “everyone wins when a leader gets better.”
