Maintain the Homefront

Filed under: Tips — stevekaplan @ 11:30 am

This is the fourth of my five keys to leadership.

Maintain the homefront. Nurture and support employees’ personal lives. No, I’m not suggesting that you run a dating service- just share the wealth a little and do what you can do to make your employees’ home and social lives easier. Once in a while, spring for an inexpensive lunch. Plan for an open house for employees, suppliers, even clients. Let your employees bring a spouse or date to holiday parties; excluding significant others can generate animosity toward the company and stress in the home.  When in doubt or under budget constraints, opt for less extravagant but no less inclusive celebrations.
