Dear visitors, you will notice that I talk about leadership in the context of making your staff happy. I talk about focussing your attention on improving the work-life of your team and I talk about using your Emotional Intelligence to make that happen.
And let me explain why making your employees happy in work is your NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
Because Richard Branson says so
Don’t take my word for it, take the word of someone who has built a multi-billion pound business empire. Richard Branson’s approach to management is to put his employees at the forefront of everything he does. According to him, a great leader at Virgin must:
- Praise employees instead of criticising them.
- Genuinely love all people from the cleaning lady to the senior executives.
- Be a great listener who not only hears the recommendations from employees but acts upon them.
Because the James Corden so
James Corden, the host of the “Late Late Show” and writer and star of “Gavin and Stacey”, is not just that charming, funny guy off the telly, he also runs a successful production company.
During a podcast chat he was asked about how he manages to run his production company when he is so busy. He said that his role was to find the best people he can and make sure he hangs onto them. He has not got time to micro-manage people so he understands that he has to find good people and give them the tools to be successful. He now runs a very successful production company … as well as, you know, performing, hosting, being funny, etc.
Because the data says so
There is a lot of data that shows that happy employees lead to happy customers and happy customers spend more! That means, if you focus your efforts on making your staff happy, you will see the reward in the bottom line!
