Tools to Make Talent Development a Success

So how do you development talent?  Here are a few tools to get you started:

Eliminate Insecurities 

Hiring the right managers is very important for cultivating talent in your company.  You want someone who is a team player instead of someone who views other employee’s as competition.  When you eliminate these insecurities, you will discover a management team that is willing to help the people working under them to grow and develop.  Secure managers will see the benefit of having competent employees.

Recognise Skill Sets

Understanding an employee’s potential and skill set is the trick to developing them.  Don’t be afraid to rearrange job titles to fit each persons skill set, and give them the resources and education to build upon what they naturally have.  This will boost their confidence in their position, and they will see how invested the company is in making them reach their potential.

Use Mistakes as Learning Experiences

Take a leap of faith in your employee’s and trust them with projects.  When they make a mistake, use it as a way to educate them instead of taking away responsibilities.  It takes time to learn the in-and-out’s of business operations, so a little patience and direction will go a long way.
