Always Be Looking For Ways To Develop Your Direct Reports

You are probably familiar with the Chinese proverb: “Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.”  As a leader, you should be challenging your direct reports to always be growing.

If you are not already doing so, empower your direct reports to chair your team’s weekly staff meetings.  This popular empowerment technique achieves many purposes.  First, it develops your direct reports to run effective meetings.  Second, it saves you time as you are no longer responsible for meeting preparation and follow-up.  Finally, you become more productive in the meetings focusing on the content and less on the process.

Empower and encourage your direct reports to always be growing and success will surly come.
