Pay (or at least encourage) Your Employees to Read Books

Or to attend useful, relevant seminars.

Or to develop new skills.

Or to deepen the skills they’re already good at.

Or to watch ted talks.

Or to develop interest in two seemingly unrelated fields.

Or to think through their ideas by writing them down.

Or to spend time coming up with solutions to your companies problems, problems that you’re not aware of, problems that could be avoided entirely with the right person doing the right kind of thinking.

Why wouldn’t you want to do this? Why wouldn’t you want to invest in the development of the people you work with? (Including yourself?)

The alternative to this is to let yourself and your people stagnate.

Potential remains unrealized if development remains stagnant. That’s a much worse fate than losing capital.
