A good way to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your team is to assign them tasks of increased importance. These tasks are like steps. Once they complete a task successfully, then move on to something else with them that can be a bit more difficult. Never be afraid to take employees out of their comfort zone. It can be surprising, and rewarding, how well they thrive with different sets of responsibilities than they previously had. All of a sudden, your organization became stronger because of it.
