Who are the best people to lead your company as it continues to grow? Time will ultimately tell, but the best bets are probably already on your staff. They just require a little nurturing from you. Encouraging leadership growth among your existing employees not only excites them and creates a strong culture, but it ensures your next generation of leadership will be all the more invested in the organizations success, as Ryan O’Connell explains in this article at LinkedIn.
So how do you actually set employees on a leadership path? It doesn’t happen overnight, says O’Connell. It starts with open communication and giving them the chance to fail small at first as you begin to build their confidence and trust.
