Help Your People Get What They Want

Here are six questions you should ask your best people regularly:

  1. Where do you want to be career-wise one year from now?
  2. What are the two or three things that need to happen to make this a reality?
  3. What is standing in your way now? What obstacles do you see?
  4. How will you overcome what is standing in your way?
  5. How can I help you make this goal a reality?
  6. 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.
