Some great ideas that can be used to help define a 'develop others' capability. The gap is often in the 'doing' so, mapping out the specific activities to be performed by line leaders as part of their role, and supporting them with guidance, tools etc. can have a huge impact on performance

The 4 elements of an effective employee engagement strategy

The 4 elements of an effective employee engagement strategy | employee engagement | Scoop.it
You don’t usually realize that you need an employee engagement strategy until something goes terribly wrong – your reputation fails to attract new talent, your best employees are one foot out the door or your working environment has become so toxic that even office plants are withering.

Almost two thirds of employees surveyed in Deloitte’s TalentEdge 2020 global survey say that they’re open to or actively looking for their next career move. The lack of a coherent employee engagement strategy is reflected in their trust and intent to stay, or rather their intent to leave.

Andrew Gerkens's curator insight, June 4, 2014 9:26 PM

I love this post! It paints such a simple, yet powerful picture of what leaders developing others really looks like and achieves.


Developing Others (I prefer this than the term coaching, as people have specific ideas about what coaching is/isn't and the term itself can frighten a lot of line leaders who don't see themselves as coaches) is about regular conversations and sharing that helps workers solve problems, sets them up for and supports them through difficult challenges, aligns them with business priorities and ultimately helps them get better at their work every day.


A simple group activity you might try (with HR/L&D and/or line leaders) would be to pull this post apart and turn it into a simple set of behavioural expectations for your line leaders - make their role in developing team members clear. HR/L&D can then look at how they can best support and enable line leaders to perform their roles.
