Encouraging Development

Engagement – The Secret of Productivity – Encouraging Development
by Scott Seibert

There is a secret to productivity. It is called engagement. It is what happens when a wise leader or enlightened manager of people discovers how to build a team of people who perpetually strive to improve the organization of which they are a part. And they do so because they want to, not because they have to.

This is the seventh article in our series on Leadership. We’ll call it Encouraging Development. Developing people does not necessarily mean promoting people. It does mean helping them find a role that takes full advantage of their strengths. Sometime it is just called “fit”. Most people are happy in their jobs when they can maximize their skills, knowledge, and talent. These people show up every day. They learn from their mistakes and grow. They mentor others and create a corporate culture of success.
