We have all heard that great Leaders develop others! In fact, in most organizations leaders should be developing their talent and it is part of their annual staff review form. Now, let’s be honest, talent development takes the back seat more times than what we care to admit. We are all so busy and training & development can always wait—so I hear. However, it cannot wait as it will directly affect the financial performance of your organization in a short and long term. The best thing you can do for any of your employees is to train them to do their job better, which will benefit themselves and the organization.
Developing your staff makes good business sense, think about it this way; people care if you take a genuine interest in their future, which at the same time builds loyalty, loyalty increases engagement and engagement increases productivity, productivity increases what? We live in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment and if you are not learning, you will stay behind. We must be ready to adapt or risk becoming irrelevant. Who wants that? You want successful employees as much as they want to be successful. Yeah, they may move on down the road in the future but you should want the best for them. Nothing will build loyalty more than investing in their futures. Train them to be the best so they can say, “Much of what I learned that made me who I am was learned during my time at [company]”. Wouldn’t that feel good? Don’t you want that kind of respect and admiration? You know worth of mouth does wonders for the recruitment of talented people. You do all things with the highest ethics possible and eventually it will pay off in dividends.
Bottom line: train your folks! It will keep them from being bored and stagnant. Show them they can grow and you should help them grow—that’s what good leaders do.
We aspire to be your training partner to help your teams grow and develop into professional partners in the multifamily industry showing that they have the chops to represent multi-million dollar assets!
