My mind is racing at this ungodly hour of the night/day. So I decided to fire up my laptop and perhaps capture some snippets of what’s been bugging me.
And what a coincidence. As I was looking at my e-mail, I was led to this Poynter Institute column “Great Bosses Know: Hire Good People, But Don’t Leave Them Alone.”
The thing is, finding good people is always a big challenge for managers. Keeping them is a steeper hill you have to climb. What’s interesting is this point:
…the most important thing great bosses do is help others succeed. As I write in “Work Happy,” the way to accomplish that is to modify that hot-button management mantra I so dislike into something far more helpful:
Hire good people and give them great feedback.
That last statement hits home.
