Valuing Others… The Secret Ingredient

Valuing Others… The Secret Ingredient

Ok, I will let you in on a little secret… it’s no secret!

The truth is that all this stuff you hear from us consultants is horse puckey (well, maybe not ALL of it!)

The truth of having a happy and engaged workforce that doesn’t want to work anywhere else is:


If you are totally honest with yourself, what is it that you want from others?  Do you want to feel that you make a difference and that what you say is important?  Do you want others to appreciate your efforts and contributions to the cause?  I think we all know the answer.

When you value another person, it is an affirmation that they matter.  That they are important to you, and that you will sincerely consider their input to the decisions that you must make in the business, even if that decision doesn’t go their way.

In the end, when people feel valued, everything else falls into place, because succeeding as a team in your business becomes important to everyone.  Remember the old saying, “stopping one man who is running down the field is one thing, stopping a hundred is another story!”

Have a Great Week!
