Our employees are our most valuable resource

These words were said to me 30 years ago when I was starting out in my career. My mentor at the time said this to me and it was like a light bulb turned on in my head. I had never thought like that.

Over the years and though my many positions in different organizations I have learned that there are many managers who just don’t realize the power of treating their team as a precious gift to be nurtured and valued.

As a manager I believe my job is to ensure my team has all that they need to be successful. From comprehensive training programs to personal development it is my job to give my people the support they need to fly and become eagles.

An eagle is a team member that takes pride in performing their role at the highest level possible. They take chances, they bring ideas to the table without fear, they speak up and communicate the successes and the struggles and they lift up the other members of the team to strive for excellence. They are engaged and committed to the success of the team and their goals. They also have fun doing it!

Always believe the very best of your team and treat them with the respect and reverence they deserve.  When you take this route your eagles fly and the chickens are easy to spot in the group. Don’t be afraid to let the chickens go as they will drag down the team.

You need eagles so that you can all soar to greater and greater successes. A cohesive, empowered and valued team will accomplish amazing things. Remind yourself every day that “our employees are our most valuable resource”.

As their manager feed their souls and smile when your team exceeds everyone’s expectations
