As Leaders we have to realize we have a bigger responsibility in today's work place environments than just providing a source of employment and a paycheck.
With the proliferation of digital technology, work from home environments, broken homes, and a reduction in participation of traditional community venues such as church, our work environments need to take on a bigger meaning and provide a bigger support system.
Because we spend so much of our time at work, existing in a negative, stressful, non validating and unfulfilling environment can lead havoc on our health both physically and emotionally. Not being happy, heard, and connected at work is just as much a risk factor to your health as is diabetes, smoking, or obesity.
By getting to know your employees as people, above and beyond the requirements of the position, by providing a supportive safe environment to grow, take risks, and explore their own talents with proper coaching, and by listening, acknowledging, and rewarding them you are empowering your people to contribute at the highest level to your business. Investment in your people is the best way to build your business.
It is also a great way for you to build a rewarding career as a leader!
