When looking for staff with promotion potential, do you look to understand their long-term goals?

King Solomon wrote, "A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, but a man of understanding draws it out" (Proverbs 20:5 NASB).

Each employee will have dreams and aspirations, and work is a key to fulfilling those dreams. Some staff will want to be promoted into management while others just want a paycheck with little added responsibility. Spend enough quality time with your staff and determine each person's long-term desires. Then tailor a development plan suitable to each. Each employee will grow as you understand each need.
