Success belongs to those who are willing to learn, grow and adapt
Organisations need people to develop as jobs and business strategies evolve to meet changing demands. There are two things to keep in mind for development namely: the goals of the business and the aspirations and motivations of individuals.
The first step is to determine what success looks like for the organisation and translate that to the skills required for specific jobs or levels of leadership. The next is to help people gain a more profound knowledge of themselves and their impact at work.
No one who takes a new job can handle everything easily from the start, no matter how experienced they are. People will only continue effectively in their careers if they find ways to deal with new challenges.
Organisations can establish development as a priority by creating a culture for learning, making it safe for people to give and receive feedback. Acknowledge that people don’t know everything, as there is always more to know, and that we sometimes need to look broadly for answers.
As individuals benefit from development, so do teams. Therefore, team members must put ongoing effort into evolving and maturing the way they work together.
