Engagement Tip # 21 – Leaders, Be Brave and Tell Your Employees How Business Is Really Doing

Silence is not always golden. Holding back vital business information from employees, cialis especially when things are heading in the wrong direction, is usually the worst kept secret, and may keep you from finding the solutions that are critical to turn things around. Employees know when things aren’t going well.  They can see it and sense it from your behaviours or your language.  Be a courageous leader and let them know what’s going on, then, invite them to help you right the ship.  Send your employees a powerful message that “we’re all in this together”, one of the many great quotes from Steve Smith of the Red Green Show. You may not be able to fix your business’ financial issues with duct tape but you will go a long way in sending a powerful message to your employees that you need their help and value their contributions. At the end of the day, all employees want from their leaders is the truth; good, bad or ugly, so that they can do what needs to be done to keep the ship going in the right direction.
