Become a Mentor and Protector to Your Subordinates

Being an employer or supervisor comes with many responsibilities. Two of the most important responsibilities are to be a mentor and protector to those under your supervision or employment. You have an obligation to help subordinates grow. When you hire any employee, it is the employer or supervisor’s responsibility to do everything they can to ensure that that employee succeeds at their job. On occasion, despite all of your mentoring efforts, an employee may not work out. The job may not be right for them for whatever reason. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the employer or supervisor to help that employee find a new job where his or her skills and talents will be better applied. The fact that you hired an employee who did not work out, is your fault. You hired them. They did not hire themselves. Always remember: whoever is under your supervision is under your protection too.
