One of my co-workers approached me
She’s worried because she heard
via the gossip mill
that she may be reporting
to a new boss
(btw… I immediately verified this gossip.
It is true).
What is the number one thing
on her boss wish list?
That her boss sticks up for her.
If you want loyal, hard working employees,
you have to be a loyal, hard working boss.
Defend your people.
Fight to get them
the perks and raises they deserve.
When explaining mistakes,
remind others of your employee’s successes.
Give them credit
for what they do FOR YOU every day.
Be a great boss
and great people will want to work for you.
It IS that simple.
