Organizations aren’t static entities. They need to grow and change, and that can only happen when the people at the center of the work have opportunities to grow and achieve their goals. That’s why good leaders are intentional about helping their people develop — because they know that developing people puts the whole organization on the path to success. Read on for tips from Devin on practical, effective ways to help your people develop and achieve success within your organization.

SCHEDULE DEVELOPMENT DISCUSSIONS
Make a point to schedule and hold regular conversations with your reports about their interests, professional goals, and potential career paths in the organization. Follow these discussions up with ongoing support by connecting your people with the key opportunities, contacts, and resources to be successful.
CREATE ACTION-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT PLANS
Work with your people to create individual development plans that support their personal career goals and align with the needs of the business. Target the specific action steps that will help them hone into the skills that add value in their current and future roles.
CONTINUALLY INVEST IN YOUR PEOPLE
Help your people put their goals into action by creating consistent space for development — through trainings, team building, professional knowledge transfer, conference attendance, etc. Remember, these investments result in an important return for your business. Supporting individual and team growth leads straight to organizational growth!
