Hello,

Could you please tell me whether it's idiomatic to say "inspire their growth" when referring to the action of mentoring, encouraging, motivating them to make people's growth?

For example, is it correct to say this?

Eg: Tom maintains his team well by always inspiring his team members' growth.

    I suggest something like "inspiring them to grow".

    The phrase "maintains his team" sounds odd. Perhaps you mean "mentors his team" or something similar.

    Hi Barque,

    Thanks for your suggestion! I will take your advice!

    If the sentence has "grow" already, do we need changing "inspiring them to grow" to another form?

    For example, can I change the form to "improve"?
    Eg: Tom grows his team quickly by inspiring his teammates to improve.

    I wouldn't use "grows" in the main clause in that way. They aren't plants. :)

    Tom helps his team members grow by inspiring them.
    Tom helps his team members by inspiring them to [improve/grow/fulfill their potential/....]
    Tom inspires his team members and helps in their growth.
