The Intersection of Ethics, EQ, and Getting Things Done

  • Stay longer than the average five-year span
  • Be more committed to the outcomes of a project
  • Recommend others to work there
  • Retain customers

So really, by understanding your employees as people, you’re ensuring the success of your company on a larger level. What have you got to lose?

The Link Between Realistic Expectations and Productivity

It’s so hard to lose sight of the small pieces in play when you’re looking at the big picture. You have to have deadlines and expectations, and sometimes you have to push your employees to work a little harder to meet them.

But when you are empathetic, emotional, ethical, and employee-centric, you send a message to your employees: “You’re doing the hard work, and you’re appreciated.” You’d be surprised how much more work they can get done in an environment that is rooting for them, rather than one that is saying, “You’re not doing enough.”
