Growing People

Jim Stroup at Managing Leadership, a must read blog, looks at why managers should be "master gardeners."

Jim's point is right on target. One of the most successful executives I've known developed a reputation for grooming future department heads. By doing so, he influenced his entire industry because many of his employees went on to direct similar operations with other organizations. The ones who stayed with him were also extraordinarily good.
