Thought for the Week - 4/20/09

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. -- Scott Adams

Unfortunately, many leaders today still do not understand that in order to be successful, in order to inspire and motivate people, it takes more than telling them what to do and giving them a paycheck. The days of employees being grateful to their bosses because they were given a job and then being willing to be underappreciated or ignored are over. There is a new age of leadership emerging which focuses on caring for and serving others.


As a leader, do you allow room for mistakes and risks; do you provide support and resources along with positive coaching and strong feedback that builds people up?

When is the last time you placed emphasis on taking care of their employees?

When is the last time you went to see them rather then waiting for them to come see you?

As a supervisor, what are you doing to build a relationship with and between each one of your team members, both individually and as a team.?
