Randy Goruk’s Leadership Tip of the Week
As you think about your team, can you identify the weakest link? You know, the one person, who if you were forced to reduce your team size by one person, you would let go.
If you view them as your weakest link today, it is important for you and the future of the organization to take the steps necessary to give them all the help they need to succeed.
Although, they probably have a personal development plan or personal improvement plan in place, I suggest you take it to a higher level.
Over the next two or three weeks schedule an additional hour with that person and work specifically on the area that you feel they need the most help in. If you can’t do it, find someone else to strengthen your weakest link.
Remember, if they fail – you fail.
