You’re doing a great job and you’re really an asset to the team. I think, though, that you have qualities we haven’t had a chance to develop yet, and that it would be worth it to pursue those. We have an opportunity for additional training that I think could enhance the quality of your work even more.
You are definitely the kind of employee I value, which is why I think the investment of training would be worthwhile for you.
Specifically, I was thinking about training related to _____________. I think it could help you _____________ and benefit the team by _____________. What do you think? Can we talk about when you are available to complete the training?
Note: Educating your employees is a continuous process. It falls on you and your senior employees to create teachable moments wherever possible. Don’t view setbacks and disagreements as issues to address but lessons to be learned. This will help foster a more positive work environment while simultaneously advancing the company closer to its goals.
