Be consistent in developing others to help you achieve your goals
Give others great autonomy and freedom.
Letting others use their unique approach to doing certain tasks breeds innovation.
While every task should include some degree of independence, every task also needs basic expectations for how specific situations should be handled.
Define meaningful objectives.
Targets can create a sense of purpose and add a little meaning to even the most repetitive tasks.
Give them a sense of purpose.
Include others in your processes so they can feel valued and appreciated.
When you respect others, they are more likely to connect well with you.
Criticize them privately.
Good bosses give constructive feedback in private.
Praise them in public.
Public appreciation and recognition may just be the nudge an average performer needs to become a great performer.
Give them opportunities to grow.
Help others gain skills or experiences that could one day land them their dream job. After all, you will also benefit from these skills.
