Yesterday I was discussing with Mike the value of front-loading time and effort. You know, the whole teach a man to fish vs. giving him a fish thing.
It's quick and easy to give a man a fish compared to teaching him how to fish. But it's best for him and you if you teach him instead of giving him a fish (there is the argument to do both if starvation is a concern). Teaching him may grant him long-term independence while giving him a fish is a short-term fix that guarantees future need.
The more you front-load your effort in teaching your employees, the better it is for both of you. It's easy for you to just tell them what to do. It takes more effort to show them. But for you to make their training and education active for them will take the most effort. It will take more time and effort for you to set them up well in the beginning, but it is best for everyone in the long-term.
