i The Library is now subscribing to a small monthly publication entitled

Common Sense About Working with Peopldl The editor has generously
n agreed to let me share some of the pieces from this publication on a
{ regular basis. My first selections are: a piece from April 1976
i . issue entitled How pp Develop Good Assistants , and a bit from March
? 1976.
; J. Bryant
i A Piece - "The most valuable executives," once said a leading business
man, "are those who are training others to be better than they are."
i Why do good leaders usually have capable assistants? In the first
g place, it is because they have the taste and judgment to hire good ·

 i, A
people in the first place—people with the potential to grow and
develop. Secondly, it's because they know how to develop them.
i Leaders such as these are not vain, insecure people who try to hide
what they know. They share their knowledge and talent. The more
their geoyle know, the more they can handle. Thus the leader can
delegate more, which frees him or her to work on other problems.
That°s one of the marks of good managers-willingness to teach others.
They aren't just willing-—they insist on it. They expect their
assistants to pay attention, learn, grow, and take over as much ‘
responsibility as they possibly can.
I Insecure managers——who feel that nobody helped them on the way up-
are often reluctant to teach anything to their assistants. If they
had to learn the hard way, why shouldn't everyone else?
Usually, such people view everyone, including subordinates as potentid.
rivals for their position. They want to do it all themselves and
get all the credit for doing it. Needless to say, they make poor
They delegate as little as possible, assuming a superior, arrogant
attitude——no one can do it as well as they, therefore the whole
load is on their shoulders.
Most successful leaders, fortunately, are not that selfish or
shortsighted. Nevertheless, many still don't train or develop the
people who work for them nearly as much as they should or could. For
some reason they just don't appreciate how important it is.
It is important . . . it benefits everyone connected with a business.
Helping subordinates become as qualified as possible is important to
their morale and to good results. Most people want to improve
themselves; they like working for leaders they can learn from. ·
Conversely, they lose respect for a manager who obviously doesn't
intend to teach them a thing.
It's also important to the leader. It's a great satisfaction to
help people develop and grow in their jobs. Sooner or later, what
you do for others always returns to benefit you. Not the least of
those benefits will be greater recognition of what a competent
leader you actually are.
A Bit — To give people help, while denying them a significant part
in the action, contributes nothing to the development of the indi-
vidual. In the deepest sense it is not giving but taking-—taking
their dignity. Denial of the opportunity for participation is the
cknialof human dignity and democracy. It will not work.
