If you want to build a successful and sustainable company, you know that employee engagement and retention are critical. One of the ways to think about keeping employees engaged is to encourage them to chase things that they're really passionate about. Helping them chart their own growth path is also highly beneficial for any company, as you get to work with people passionate about their job.

In today’s episode, Mike is joined by Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly, a company that helps organizations make better human capital decisions based on an individual’s unique skillset. Jonathan and Mike talk about many areas of employee development, including assisting them to discover how to grow into a role other than that of a manager, encouraging learning, paying them what they’re truly worth, and helping them unlock their true potential.

Tune in to learn more about being an efficient and welcoming leader.

What are the challenges to developing leadership in today’s times?

The most significant leadership challenge is going from a startup to a complete growth mode or having a more established company do digital transformation. A leader cannot continually work on the same challenges. They need to solve one entirely or proceed with the next at once. And that happens through technology, people, or partner support.

What are some of the things that keep people from passing on their legos to others?

The first thing is constraints on time. It takes time to invest in doing something better, and when there’s a lot going on, you cannot imagine adding more to your plate simultaneously. The second thing is knowing when to put something on the side or saying that good enough is good enough.

Talk to me a little bit about your leadership pipeline...
