The Psychology of Personal Development
By Doug Van Dyke, Leadership Simplified, www.leadershipsimplified.com
Personal development is a multi-billion dollar industry. It promotes everything from fads and fallacies to solid programs that deliver outstanding results. Leaders in the workplace who focus on properly developing their team members have a leg-up on their peers. For those leaders who manage younger generations, personal development is extremely important. Helping team members to grow and learn is one of the best retention tools that exists. Actions associated with growing your team can range from managing by wandering around, leadership development programs, one-on-one coaching, and mentoring.
Bottom Line: Think strategically about how you are going to grow and develop team members. Your positive actions will increase productivity, deepen bench strength, enhance your leadership abilities, and retain your best employees. If you are not driving personal development, your team will be looking for leaders who do.
