King Solomon wrote, "A king who cultivates the field is an advantage to the land." (Ecclesiastes 5:9, NASB) Likewise, a manager who effectively educates and mentors staff is an advantage to the company.
Ask your managers and supervisors to develop a training plan for every individual under their authority. Make sure they include quantifiable goals. Think through the skills that will make an employee more valuable. For example, how can you help counter staff work with difficult customers or what training will assist staff to utilize your computer program more effectively.
Allow time and allocate resources to training. Training doesn’t require a classroom or seminars. A manager can use 15 minutes to cover one useful skill. Any structured time, used intentionally, will accomplish much. Insist that staff development become key part for managers receiving raises and promotions.
As your managers cultivate staff at all levels, your business will grow!
