When experienced leaders look back on their careers, almost inevitably their number one regret is not moving fast enough on people. For most that means not getting poor performers out of bad roles fast enough. For the most effective leaders, that also means not getting star performers into roles that are better for them fast enough.
This is counter-intuitive. Why would you ever want to get rid of your best performers? Because that’s what’s best for them when they outgrow the role.
