Do you trust your people are capable of leading your company -- even when you're not there?

There are two sides to leadership development. Ensuring you stay on top of your game -- as a direct manager, CEO or perhaps, someday, Chairman of the Board -- is important in an early-stage startup. But it's equally important to offer on-the-job training and leadership development resources to the employees you believe are capable of leading in your stead, even if it's just a day off to attend a workshop or conference.

Bonus? Empowered employees are happier, more engaged and more willing to go to bat for you when it really counts.
