Kernaussage 1 von 8

Employees are imperfect yet hopeful human beings, whose success depends on your managerial skill at growing them.

In a perfect world, employees would be perfect. They would perform tasks correctly, present outstanding ideas and ascend seamlessly from entry-level positions to top managerial spots. But the world is not perfect and employees are, like everyone, merely flawed human beings with a touch of potential.

Like plants in a garden, employees need careful, consistent attention. If they aren’t cared for, they’ll wilt.

So cultivating employees is like tending to a garden. It takes time, consideration, skill and knowledge. And if you learn how to cultivate your employees in the right way, you can help them to thrive.

Environment is the perfect place to begin.

Just as you can’t grow a cactus on a snowy mountaintop, you can’t expect a chatty, arty employee who is used to a flexible schedule to thrive and bloom in a silent payroll department that works strictly 9 to 5. She won’t be an effective team member in this environment. Even if you have the best intentions and outstanding people-management skills, it simply won’t work.

These days, considerate handling of employees is not only important, employees simply expect it.

Employees were once expected to do what they were told and then take home their pay. But today, employees are dissatisfied with this. They want to be stretched, to learn new skills and make noticeable progress.

If a business can’t cultivate its staff properly, it will find its workforce defecting to companies that care more about the development of their staff.

It’s therefore imperative that you grow your employees!

But how do you do that? In the next blinks, you’ll find out.
