As with other investments, the time comes to rebalance the portfolio by helping a top-end employee disrupt to a new learning curve.
Most disruptions require management facilitation. High-end performers may desire a new curve but can’t get there on their own. This is where you can come to their AID: applaud their achievements, identify a new learning curve, deliver on helping them jump.
Facilitating your employee’s jump to a new curve requires battling entitlement—in yourself, as well as your employee.
New S curves for people stimulate innovation for companies. Think creatively about how to slingshot your people in new directions.
