QUESTION 24: HOW WOULD THE PRACTICE OF LOVING YOUR PEOPLE AFFECT YOUR BOTTOM LINE?
Have you ever caught yourself caring too much about someone at work? You might be imagining a romantic caring, and that certainly happens but it isn’t the subject for today.
We come to work with our whole human self, equipped with emotions we’ve been trained to leave at home. Why do we separate our natural instinct for kindness, compassion and empathy from our work life?
Think back to those people who had the most influence on who you are today. Did they accomplish the impact they had on you without showing you they cared?
At CoQuora, we understand it’s good for your bottom line to love your people. And not just because it feels good and is the right thing to do.
Those organizations successfully creating a family-like atmosphere have less turnover, more loyalty, and more general goodwill than those who don’t. People come to work because they want to, and they are committed to contributing to the success of the organization.
In tough times, people who feel cared for will rally. They will be invested in making things work through innovative and creative ideas because they feel part of something bigger than themselves. Loving your people builds trust, and trust is the foundation for a growing bottom line.
EXERCISE: Consider how you can love your people even more than you already do. What does loving your people look like for you? Name one initiative you can get behind that will show your commitment to a compassionate leadership style.
