Should You Help Your Employees With Personal Goals?
Do you really want to know that much about your employees or is your motto to keep a distance between personal and business lives? People co-mingle their two lives all the time. Employees go home frustrated about work and come to work unhappy about something in their personal lives.
Since you develop business goals with each of them, why not add to the list a personal goal that you will help them manage along with their work responsibilities.
Cameron Herold brings up an interesting twist to managing employees: “Why Taking on Your Employees’ Goals Pays Off” on OPEN Forum.
You don’t want to be a therapist. Instead you can help an employee reach a goal they have in their life; for example, travel to Europe, become a stronger writer or learn an instrument.
Managing employees is about insuring the work is done and also building a relationship of trust and respect between two or more people. Helping employees meet their deliverables can also be useful in creating a stronger personal life.
