The quality of your organization depends on the quality of your team. You want “A players,” those colleagues who contribute disproportionately to the advancement and profitability of the organization. If you can build a team of “A players” around you, then your job as a business leader or owner becomes much easier, as you don’t have to deal with endless crises and can work more intentionally on developing the future strategy for your organization.
Smart supervisors work quickly to address negative employee behavior. Smarter ones create workplaces where negative behavior doesn’t occur in the first place.
Sooner or later, your best employees move on to other jobs, carrying with them whatever time and money you had invested in their development. Fortunately, there are things you can do to stem that loss. By establishing and nurturing a company-wide mentoring program, you can retain valuable intellectual assets while transferring skills from senior employees to junior ones.
