What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with my management approach?
When managers take time to know their employees, they can see where someone is strong or weak in a certain area. In my former role I had three direct reports and I chose them based on my weaknesses and their strengths. I like to skim and am admittedly bad at reading the details so I hired someone who loved digging into the details. This makes us a better, more well rounded team and she also taught me to slow down and look at the details.
Please don't hand write thank you.
Yes, I agree with your management approach. It was quite a good thing you did. Taking out time and knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the employees is definitely a good practice to follow as the work and responsibilities can be assigned accordingly. Since you were not much into reading, hiring someone who could dig into the details was a good decision as details are the ladders to success. The team has now become prepared to deal with the work. The manager should assign them responsibilities based on their strengths and weaknesses in order to get great output out of them.
