Today’s leaders and change agents are expected to build a work environment in which their key employees thrive, constantly learn and give their discretionary effort to their organization. Talent-minded leaders know that if their organization is to be productive and competitive, they must not only “hang on” to good people, but also continually develop them to engage them and meet constantly changing business needs.
Existing talent and emerging leaders want their managers to understand their strengths, skills, and interests; they want work that will keep them challenged; and they want channels to be opened for their development. They want someone to take an interest in their growth. The big question for most leaders is how to do this in a “no-time-to-do-it” environment.
