Also, find amongst them individuals that you can conveniently delegate tasks to, as this will help to develop and stretch them.
As much as possible, do not leave out celebrating them and encouraging them as they make progress. Be quick to acknowledge them when they perform well, and do not be quick to judge them when they do not meet the expectations. Always remember that change is tough and takes time, and so affirming and acknowledging them will go a long way.
And lastly, review their performance regularly and provide timely feedback so that they will know they just have to deliver. This helps to put a balance to the praises they get.
