A multiple award winning business owner, I have studied Leadership and Management and combined my personal business experience with a Certificate IV in Business and Workplace Coaching. I have come to the conclusion that people are our most important asset, however the workplaces we create are not putting our people first.
There are way too many people who hate going to work every day, or are stressed with running their business and then bring that attitude home to their families. What do our children see? They see that the only way to live is to go to a job we hate, create a business that sucks all our time from our lives and makes us tired and grumpy.
The problem with this is they copy what we do. On on a subconcious level – and so the circle goes.
My guiding philosophy is that we should wake up energised to go to work, have a great time whilst we are there and come home feeling as though we have made a difference. And I firmly believe we can achieve this.
The reason behind this philosophy is the experience of my father passing away at age 54. He worked all his life for his retirement – and he didn’t make it.
The lesson? We only have today. Why would we spend it going somewhere that we hate going and waste that day? We won’t ever get it back again.
So as leaders, managers and business owners it’s up to us to create a workplace environment that allows our teams to be fulfilled, motivated and enjoy coming to work.
If you did this, you can be sure that your productivity will go up, staff turnover will go down, and you’ll contribute to a changing, healthier society.
