Don’t Assume Expertise

We rightfully expect that people on our team will know what to do within their areas of expertise. It is not, however, reasonable to expect that they will know how to do things outside their area of expertise, especially around people skills. Leaders often assume, for example, that people know how to behave and work on team, but if your folks were not in the marching band, drama club or an athletic team, they may not have learned that skill early in life and they may be more “I’ll do it on my own.” Check out the skills of your team members and consider that they may need help in developing skills. #strategydrivenleadership #talentmanagement
