Don't Forget to Be Kind
"Be kind. Everyone is fighting a hard battle."
Plato, Over 2,000 years ago.
"Always show more kindness than seems necessary, because the person receiving it needs it more than you will ever know."
I share these quotes with the managers I coach and train. In the extreme busy-ness of work, it's easy to forget the huge influence we have on people. How do we speak to employees? Do we treat them with respect? What words and tone do we use as we give feedback?
Not only do manager interactions have a tremendous effect on team members, but team members' satisfaction or dissatisfaction can then reverberate out to their families and communities. The influence of supervisors and managers' words and actions goes beyond their own organizations.
Help your managers be leaders that keep employees loyal and engaged by providing them with training on Coaching, Motivating, and Engaging Employees. This learning event creates leaders who understand:
- What do people REALLY find motivating?
- Retention and the cost of turn-over
- Practical ways to implement the leading employee motivators
- Coaching and giving feedback to employees
- Keeping your top performers: Challenging and growing your best and brightest
The class is powerful. People go away with practical actions to keep team members inspired, thriving, and challenged. Click here for more information.
