Building Team Capability

Very short summaries of my conversations with startup Founders about Building Capability in their teams.


How can I create a learning culture so I don’t have to constantly push people to learn?

Make each team manager responsible for both hiring & training his own direct reports.

Soon, managers will start to connect the dots…”Team performance depends on team capability, which needs training… and it’s my job to arrange that”. Then, they will do what is needed.

The old centralised / HR-driven model allows line managers to disown responsibility / shift blame ; it also doesn’t scale well.
