Using an Employee’s Best Skills and Abilities

Using an Employee’s Best Skills and Abilities

Updated May 20, 2018

As a manager, it is part of your role to capitalize on each person’s talents and capabilities. You need to make sure everyone is performing at his or her best, contributes to the team’s goals, and at the same time makes use of everyone’s individual talents. Yet sometimes a person’s best skills, the ones he or she is great at and loves to do, are not maximized. Although the person may be doing a good job and contributing to the team, not using one’s best skills can eventually lead to disengagement and frustration, since the person’s top talents are frequently not used, if at all. For this course you will perform an evaluation of each of your employees’ role and job to determine how well each person is able to use his or her best talents. You will then identify opportunities to capitalize on each person’s best skills more often. By completing this course, you will be able to perform a job evaluation to determine if a particular role uses an employee's best skills and abilities. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute). This course is part of Vado's Increasing Employee Engagement course bundle which has been approved for 1.25 hours of SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Professional Development Credits (PDCs).
