One significant problem that can have each entrepreneur, especially entrepreneurs of fast-growing businesses is to keep the best employees without giving them managerial positions.
In the previous post, I talk about what an individual must practice when he/she become a manager. However, there I don’t cover something about people who don’t want to become managers or people who simply can’t become managers. Managers need to implement different managerial tasks.
Sometimes we must be aware that some employees are more valuable in the current position with their excellent technical skills. Technical skills in those employees produce direct business results for your company. More about managerial skills you can read in the Three Types of Managerial Skills.
For example, a programmer in many situations wouldn’t like a managerial job, because he/she wants to stay late on the night in the front of their computers to write code that will be valuable for the business. If you promote them to managers as a part of your business reward system, you will destroy creativity and the life of those persons.
