Strengthening and growing your business along with engaging and developing your employees should be the items at the top of your “to do” list. Fortunately, when executed properly, these goals complement one another very nicely. However, when they are poorly executed, they can put your business into a slow motion death spiral, or at least cause major setbacks.

You’re probably familiar with the Peter Principle. It says that when employee promotion is based on “achievement, success, and merit,” employees will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability. It’s a piece of business management folklore that just happens to be true much of the time.
