Become a better leader by helping your team become more effective learners.


Once you are in a leadership role, the skills that enabled you to deliver individual results are not always enough when leading others. This article provides steps to help you design a learning process that will help your team succeed. First, you need to research and read everything you can about the goal you are setting your team. Then you need a process to keep track of the suggestions made by your team. Based on your research offer them ideas to help develop a course of action. Make sure every team member understands your intent. Always seek input from your team but resist the temptation to jump in with the answer. Give your team time to work things out.
