  • Spencer Meeks thinks this is interesting:

Simply stated, forward-looking development plans give you a process to prevent future performance problems and to create an environment in which employees could motivate themselves. That, more than anything, will give you peace of mind and turn you into a motivator and coach rather than a unilateral disciplinarian and decision maker. Your employees will benefit too as they’re given the freedom and discretion to self-monitor and self-correct in an empowered environment. There’s no greater formula for enlightened leadership.


This information matters, it's a critical part of helping individuals to develop in an emotionally healthy way.
