TalentBoosters

A fundamental role of leadership (whether it be as a parent, a teacher, a manager, a coach, or a business owner) is to development the talent on our team.

Talent is not created by us; rather, it is a gift of birth, which comes in a billion varieties.  Every team member has some kind of talent, and many of them have multiple talents.   

As leaders we must:
  1. Identify the talent(s) of those within our circle of influence
  2. Help those folks understand, and understand the value of, their precious gifts
  3. Create the conditions in which our teammates can exercise their talents
  4. Encourage a continuous "polishing" of those talents
  5. Celebrate and affirm the successful use of those talents
In effect, we should be talent boosters.  Which, by the way, is a pretty cool job!
