Title: JLBC Cadet Corps: 4️⃣ Ways To Help Your Teams Become Masters Of Their Crafts 🎭

Empowering your team members to excel in their fields is the key to creating a motivated, growth-oriented work environment. Adopting the right mindset and offering the necessary guidance can transform your team into a group of skilled individuals passionate about their work. Here are four ways to help your team become masters of their crafts:

1️⃣ Introduce the "craftsman" mindset 🛠

Encourage your team members to focus on honing their skills through deliberate practice rather than simply chasing their passions. By adopting a craftsman mindset, they can identify areas where they can excel and contribute meaningfully to the team.

2️⃣ Dig deeper in your 1:1s 🕵️

During one-on-one meetings, ask team members probing questions to help them identify their strengths and weaknesses and opportunities for growth. These questions can include:

✅ What skills do others have in your field that you don't yet possess?

✅ What unique skills could you learn to set you apart from your peers?

✅ How can you make a more significant impact on the team?

✅ Who do you admire in your field, and what makes them stand out?

Create a list of 3-5 skills to target and develop.

3️⃣ Make it a roadmap 🛣️

Using the identified skills, create a roadmap for each team member, outlining specific milestones and deadlines for the next 3, 6, and 9 months. Place these deadlines in your shared calendar and use your 1:1s to track progress and provide guidance.

For example, if your graphic designer 🎨 wants to learn to code 👨🏻‍💻:

Three️⃣ months: attend at least two coding workshops

Six️⃣ months: draft the first website landing page

Nine️⃣ months: first polished website up and running

4️⃣ Crafting the path to passion 😍

Fostering a craftsman mindset and creating a skills roadmap sets your team on the path to excellence and helps them discover their passions. This approach is particularly beneficial for those struggling with growth or young professionals needing guidance.

By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to helping your team members become masters of their crafts. Share your experiences and additional tips in the comments below 👇🏻👇🏻.
