Support matters....


recently spoke to a young woman at one of my clients: she was a single mom who needed to make more money and was wondering about other jobs and whether they’d be better for her. There were openings but she’d have to learn new skills in a job she’d never done before and work a swing shift: she worried about working at night, something she’d never done before. She clearly had the desire but needed help making this big decision. The company provided support: they trained her, introduced her to all of the people who would be her new colleagues, gave her a chance to try it out, and promised she could go back to her original job if the new one didn’t work out. Life isn’t always that simple and tidy, but companies and supervisors can ease the worry when employees make change: in this case, a little empathy and support went a long way.  Help your employees make the kinds of changes needed to renew their passion and performance today.
