Principle behind developing leaders
Recently when I was in Bangkok and a close friend of mine asked me how I managed to train staff to be the next leader after me.

The most important responsible that one must have before developing any leader whether they are just a supervisor to be promoted to Senior
1. appreciate them as who they are
2.believe that they will do their best in the new position
3. praise them for their accomplishments

The leader most important task is acquiring and keeping good staff and teaches them where they lack in.
