When you actively listen to your employees and set team goals collaboratively, you can understand each of their personal passions.
Maybe your star analytics associate is also an avid writer in his free time. And perhaps he’s interested in developing that skill set at work. As a manager, it’s your responsibility to find opportunities to empower your employees to take on new challenges. So, if your team member enjoys writing, he can collaborate with the Marketing Team and contribute to their blog. This not only benefits him, but the company, too.
“One of the most important things you can do is to be a support system for your team. I make it clear that I’m investing in you. I want to have a personal relationship and understand where you’re trying to go.”
– Sara Correa, Global Head of Marketing, TE Connectivity
