Developing employees to step into positions of increased responsibility is a critical issue for companies. Often a new supervisor is promoted because of his demonstrated expertise at a task. The problem arises when he does not recognize he no longer gets paid to do the work, but to ensure that the work gets done. Poor morale, lack of training for subordinates, burnout for the new leader, inefficient use of resources, and turnover stem from the failure to develop new leaders.
