Over the next seven weeks, we’ll explore 25 ways to keep your great employees engaged and help them continue to out-perform everyone else.

This week we start with leadership attention to talent.

Case 4: Only when a leader knows the talents of every team member well can they confidently and effectively delegate or assign work. Because talent corresponds to a person’s potential, when talents and aspirations are known, it allows leaders to create succession plans, opportunities and goals for their team members. When people know that there is a plan for them, and especially when it is a plan that allows them to do more of what they do best and enjoy most, they are likely to show appreciation to the leader and organization with increased productivity and engagement, and an intent to stay.
