Don't Forget Your Middle-Layer Employees
As a leader, your focus may gravitate toward your lower level employees and your higher level employees on your team.
But, don't forget your middle-layer employees who appreciate your attention and coaching, and your training and opportunities for new challenges.
Often these employees are more eager to learn and to tackle new projects because they have the drive to move up and to learn new skills. And they recognize they have a shorter path to achieve advancement.
So, develop your middle layer employees. It's a win-win situation.
