In a recent one on one with my boss, he lamented that the number one issue he has with many of my directs is their lack of resourcefulness. With me, it was my not holding the team members accountable for this desired trait. He further stated that in order for me to prove my effectiveness in this area that I do one or both of the following:
- Change his perception of this view
- Change the performance of my team members as it applies to resourcefulness
Any thoughts or ideas on this one? Are there any podcasts out there to specifically address this?
As a bonus, the boss noted that at least one of my team members lacks sufficient assertiveness. I have the same questions on this as well.
Thanks in advance!
