Jeff started a great conversation on the last episode around the idea of growth paths and grow-outs. We’ll continue that conversation this week and look at the idea – “Regardless of seniority, every good manager creates growth paths for their team.”
Leading a team is all about knowing the strengths and weaknesses of others on the team. It helps you to put the right people in the right roles for the project. But how do you find out the strengths/weaknesses of individual team members? And what happens if if someone has outgrown their role on the team?
On this episode, we’ll fill in that good manager sentence with – “Regardless of seniority, every good manager knows their team’s strengths.”
Everyone talks about the power with regular 1:1s between you and your team. But are they really worth it? And how important is it go have them regularly scheduled?

“It’s not personal, it’s just business”. You’ve heard this phrase before and maybe even said it. But is it true? On this episode, fill in the good manager question with this belief – “Regardless of seniority, every good manager will care personally.”
