It’s time again for an inspiring quote. Leadership: The art of getting someone else to do something you want done, because he wants to do it – said Dwight D. Eisenhower.
It makes sense in business to delegate; especially if you have motivated employees who want to gain more experience and advance their careers. At FACETS Business Solutions, we’re very fond of delegating and outsourcing, too – this is how business gets done. For example, we happily take on young and inexperienced apprentices, interested in human resources, bookkeeping, or general business, and we teach them the ways of our business. Their pay is not as high as an expert’s would be; but what we’re offering them is experience, which will be the very qualifications they’ll need to put on their resumes. With pride, we train and offer great opportunity to those who are motivated and are intent on learning and improving.
Do you remember the first time you got your break in business? As a business that works in the human resources industry, we know that the city is full of people who are willing and able to work, but haven’t had the opportunity to learn and experience. So, think about your business, and in what area you can train and offer others a job, to help them succeed.
We usually think of hiring younger adults, who are green and in need of a job opportunity. However, think also about seniors out there, who are interested in taking on a post-retirement job. Some need this job to survive, and you’ll be doing them a favour, as much as they you. They may need to take on lighter jobs, yet if they’re interested in the position, they will no less do the job with great attention to detail and verve.
There’s nothing like offering work experience to a person in need of a job or career advancement, especially if they’re motivated. So, if you’re swamped, then look for those who want to take on responsibility and be leaders in your industry.
