Identifying the skills needed for the future
Developing a growth mindset
Creating a culture of continuous learning
Employers globally are struggling to fill the skills gap. To meet the unique workforce challenges of the next decade, most successful business leaders will focus on their current people instead of searching for the perfect talent.
Your team may not be at the point you need them to be, but with the right leadership approach, you can help your staff to get there.
When employees can see what behaviours you value, it gives them an incentive for improving their performance.
On the first day, every employee wants to know how they fit in. If you don't establish behavioural expectations from the start, you allow new hires to develop less desirable behavioural patterns.
Instead, pair new staff up with your best employees to help them understand your behavioural expectations. They should think your top performers are the norm and see firsthand what it takes to thrive in your organisation.
Great teachers drive momentum by drawing attention to positive choices, giving high fives when they see improvements. This will result in students craving incremental improvements.
Leaders of high-growth teams should look for little things to recognise to give employees momentum. "You wrote a great memo", or "Thanks for being on time every day when your whole family is sick". These statements help your employees see that your approval is attainable, which is a stepping stone for more success.
Recognition and praise reinforce positive behaviours. Moreover, doing so publicly increase this effect. However, in a busy work week, recognition can be forgotten.
If you don't manage to share compliments with your team or forget, take 15 minutes out of each week and consider what progress people have made that you didn't recognise publicly. Then do it at once. Send out one-sentence texts, emails, or Slack messages to acknowledge small successes.
People will depend on you to call out poor behaviour and correct negative outcomes as a leader. That's why you shouldn't wait for poor performers to improve in their own time. Instead, you will have to change the cycle.
Proactively reach out to struggling team members and let them know which behaviours are holding them back and which will make them successful.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
