Try a Human Approach

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on September 23, 2008

Businesses of all sizes are faced with fierce marketplace pressures. Leaders try to get their people to do more, while available resources are scaled back in the name of productivity and financial belt-tightening. As a result, many places are becoming "burnout organizations," where workers feel more like office equipment than human beings. To avoid this, ask yourself how you might place a higher priority on touching your people’s lives in a positive way, every day—particularly when you are making difficult choices. Not only does this make sense on a spiritual and ethical level; it creates a workplace that enables you to attract and retain the best people.
