3 signs an employee is ready for more on their plate

As a leader, there may not be anything more satisfying that seeing your employees develop into leaders themselves. If you’re hiring the right people and giving them the proper training and experience, this is something that should happen naturally. Not everyone embraces a leadership role, but most will jump at the chance to move their careers forward. If you’re looking for the next leader at your credit union, here’s who you’re looking for…

Someone who’s always ready for what’s next: Some people are content doing the same thing day after day. While you can appreciate them for the hard work they do, they may not be looking to move into a leadership role. The employees you should keep your eyes on are the ones who love tackling a new assignment and then looking for the next new assignment.

Someone with natural-born leadership: Some skills just come naturally to some people. Without being prodded, a natural-born leader will emerge in a team environment. They’ll be the ones who aren’t just concentrating on their part of a project but know how each part works together and stays focused on making sure that the team is thriving as one. When you watch these employees, you can tell they care about team success.

Someone who wants to change the game: An employee who is ready for the next level probably has something to say. Having ideas that will improve work flow or increase profits is a sign of a mind that is ready to take the next step.
