The highest quality machines usually have the strongest parts. If you want your team to be the strongest, you’ll want to make sure you’re maximizing the strengths of your employees. Here are three ways to do just that…
Do your research: If you want to maximize the potential of your employees’ strengths, you have to know exactly what they are. Through conversing with your team and observing them in their current roles, you should be able to get a better idea of where their strengths and weakness lie.
Shuffle the deck: You won’t always find that employees are in the ideal role for their skillset. If you find an employee is struggling in their current position, it may be time to look and see if there’s a better fit in the company. Furniture can be a pain to put together, but when the assembly is done and every part is in the right place, it’s a satisfying result.
Water your plants: Just like plants need water and sunlight to grow, your employees can’t grow if they’re not given what they need. Sometimes employees need training to further their skills in certain areas. Find opportunities to help employees grow in ways that will help your staff and the company.
