Yesterday I asked you to think about some questions related to how you can grow your people:
In order to answer those questions well, we need to think about the different ways that people grow. I’ve organized five of them into the cube of development:
1. External trainers and workshops are generally off-site events. They may occur as part of a training sequence or be single “one-shot” events.
2. Internal trainers and workshops are likely to occur on-site and to be part of a series of trainings.
The advantages of these forms of development is that they can train many people at one time and are usually conducted by effective and qualified trainers.
Unfortunately, coaching from organizational leaders is often neglected. Part of this is due to being on the urgency treadmill. Another barrier is lack of training in how to coach.
A strategic organization will invest in developing the coaching skills of their leaders. Until then, you can try five-minute coaching.
Tomorrow we’ll look at self-reflection and individual initiative.
Do good and be well,
