“Never discourage anyone…who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.”
We all learn at different speeds. Some catch on quickly, others take a bit more time and encouragement but eventually get it. It may be easy to think that the person that is not catching on as quick just isn’t going to work out, but don’t be so quick to judge.
Ability to catch on quickly doesn’t necessarily equate to work ethic and loyalty. A lot of times people who catch on quickly also get bored quickly. The person you encourage and invest more time into to help them succeed will also be more invested in the quality of their work, the job, and the team.
Encouragement costs you nothing and pays dividends in the end.
Have a great week.
