Here are six questions you should ask your best people regularly:
- Where do you want to be career-wise one year from now?
- What are the two or three things that need to happen to make this a reality?
- What is standing in your way now? What obstacles do you see?
- How will you overcome what is standing in your way?
- How can I help you make this goal a reality?
- Who else can help you achieve your goal?
When you help your people get what they want, they will unfailingly help you get what you want.
