Help Your People Develop on the Job #Managementtips #PersonalEffectiveness

Posted by Matt Collins on April 1, 2014

As much as 90% of learning and development takes place on the job – which makes sense since continuous learning is a key strategy for a sustainable career. In fact, employees’ direct managers are often their most important developers. Help your team members flourish with these tips:

• Instead of a yearly conversation about career goals during performance reviews, talk frequently. Regular discussions about your employees’ objectives and interests help them to refine goals and spot opportunities for development.

• When planning a group project, ask team members to identify both how they can contribute and what they would like to learn. This avoids their volunteering to perform only tasks that they already know they can do.

• Ask employees to report back periodically to you and fellow team members on what they have been learning and how they are using their new skills and knowledge.
