BE A MENTOR
It's the leader's job to develop the talents and strengthen the people on the team. This is true in the short term, as the team members deal with their assignment at hand. But it's also true long-term: the leaders must take a genuine responsibility for the lives and careers of the members of the team.
“How would you like to improve?” “Where do you want your career to go from here?” “What kinds of new responsibilities would you like to be taking on?” It's your job as leader to ask all those questions and to use whatever knowledge and experience you possess to help team members achieve those goals.
