What's the secret to having an engaged and productive team? It's having a plan for developing all employees--no matter where they are on their personal learning curves.
Better morale and higher performance happen through learning, argues Whitney Johnson. In over twenty years of coaching, investing, and consulting, Johnson has seen that employees need continuous learning and fresh challenges to stay motivated.
The best bosses know this, and they know how to make it happen by thoughtfully designing people’s jobs around the skills they have today as well as the skills they'll need to be even more valuable tomorrow. That's how entire organizations stay competitive in an unpredictable, rapidly changing business environment.
In this book, Johnson explains how to become one of those bosses and how to build your A-team by:Identifying what your employees already know and what they need to learnDesigning their jobs to maximize engagement and learningApplying a seven-step process for leading each person up their learning curve
We all want opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow in our jobs. When our bosses work with us to help us leap to new challenges, the result is a team that knows how to thrive, no matter what the future holds.
