Skill set management
So you have teams of people working for you but you don't really understand what they do on a daily basis or where their progression lies.
As Managers and Directors we are all guilty of employing someone using a structured job description and not really understanding the actual values and beliefs of that person or where they want to take the role we have put them in.
I once had an employee that had a superb skill set hidden away and I had no idea at all as they were quite the introvert and extremely private.
Once I took the time to understand their real passions in life I got to see exactly where they could benefit the business and how they could increase their job satisfaction at the same time as doing a much more profitable role in the company.
Simple understandings go a long way.
This doesn't have to take hours of your time either, a simple skill set mapping exercise or a 1 to 1 review can open a lot of doors and maximise your internal resource, saving thousands on recruitment fees.
It's a wonderful thing to watch someone flourish in business because they are passionate and hungry.
It's a terrible thing to see them de-motivated and in a negative mindset, not to mention how that affects team morale and company culture.
