Never Shoot Your Wounded
Reblogged from “How Leaders Manage”
We Don’t Shoot Our Wounded!
Everyone has had or will have personal problems. I’ve had team members experience the loss of a very close family member, mental health issues, personal injury, severe child illness, parents who needed round the clock care, court issues, and housing problems. These reasons should never result in someone being released. We don’t shoot our wounded. We learn to staff around it.
When you have mercy and give kindness to your team who is legitimately hurting and in need, you build a massive amount of loyalty not only with them but the rest of your team. Companies who treat people like a commodity as if they are just cogs in the great machine create an “us versus them” culture and you don’t want that.
Don’t shoot your wounded.
