Competing at the highest level is not about winning. It’s about preparation, courage, understanding and nurturing your people and heart. Winning is the result – Joe Torre
Recognizing a potential is already a given talent for most employers like you, but it is impossible to draw out that potential if you are not willing to spend time with that person. That’s why spending time with a potential leader from your company is one of the most important things to consider.
You need to cultivate that relationship to know how best to work with that person. This does not just bring out their confidence, but it also allows you to sync your mission and vision for the company, and work on a common goal together.
Leadership is basically accountability in a greater sense. If you cannot hold your employees accountable for every work (whether good or bad) they do, then how can you expect for them to lead? Great leaders are not just good at what they do, but they are willing to accept the fall when things don’t work out as planned.
It is important however to emphasize the thought that responsibility and accountability of a job are not something to be afraid of (it also does not follow punishment), but rather, it is always an infinite opportunity for improvement. This is a crucial point because you don’t want your employees to be afraid, to the point that they might be hesitant to try out new ideas for fear of drawbacks.
A leader is nothing without the team. To nurture potential leaders in your company fully, you should assess how they do well when it comes to collaboration and teamwork. You must also observe what their attitude towards teamwork is. Do they have the right sense of initiative? Do they have a tendency to become insubordinate? Are they good and diligent followers, and other similar observations.
A leader knows how to detect and solve problems, not create them. So as an employer, it is your duty to encourage an environment that is open to new ideas and innovations that could be pitched in by any employee. This can include insights about your products and services, how you do things at the office, how you conduct customer service, and the like.
Every leader should know how to bring out the best (and not the worst) from their people. You can see a glimpse of an employee’s leadership style by the way they motivate and treat their co-workers. Do they actually help solve the problem, or do they merely point a blaming finger to another? Do they offer comforting words, or utter threats of punishment instead? You will find a potentially good leader when they actually embrace a sense of teamwork with co-workers who are in hard times. They also know how to draw out positive emotions instead of fear, desperation, and anger.
Most of all, nurturing great leaders in your company should be done by example. Yes, you should also start with yourself. Your employees would most likely see how you do things around the company, and they would see you as a role model. Setting a noble example will also lead them towards that path.
