Developing Others by Strengthening their Abilities


Developing others is part of your Empathy - a component of your Social Competence.

While Empathy, in general, is related to your awareness of other people’s needs and concerns; developing others relates to sensing their growth needs and strengthening their abilities.

People who have this competence usually:

  • Acknowledge and reward people's strengths and accomplishments
  • Offer useful feedback and identify people's needs for further growth
  • Show sensitivity to other people's feelings
  • Assign tasks that challenge and foster people's skills
  • Mentor and coach other people
