Steve Marr’s “Business Proverbs” is a daily newsletter offers sound business advice based on Biblical Beliefs. The newsletter speaks mainly to business leaders, be it business owners or business professionals, regardless of religious beliefs. However, he does use the Christian Bible as a resource and reference for all of his work. Worth a read!
As a manager, are you planning for the person who will take your place, or do you believe you will be in the saddle for ever?
WRITTEN BY STEVE MARR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9TH, 2008
As managers, we must plan for our replacement for three reasons.First, scripture give us many examples of passing the mantle.Second, the business owner deserves consistency of management to allow the business to grow and prosper after you leave.Third, if we want to be promoted within our company, our replacement must be ready. Often, promotions are missed because of a concern about who can fill our current shoes.Pour yourself into your staff, build them up, teach them, train them, and when the time comes, you can step down knowing that everything is in good hands.
