There is simply nothing worse than the compromised spirit of a staff member. Seeing a staff member struggle day in and day out with no mentorship or training is hard to watch. They want to contribute and be productive, but something inside of the company beats them down. What a morale killer!
There is a silent killer in a lot of organizations and that is how people feel about coming to work. Morale! What does your company’s morale feel like when staff are working day-to-day? When clients walk into the office, is there an upbeat feel about the office or are people walking around with little to no expression? Your business morale can make or break you as an owner and how well you profit every year. When you have a high functioning team in production and morale, your profits will exponentially grow. Ensure that staff know when things go wrong in their personal and business life, they have someone that they can speak with to correct the negative influencing ideas. Staff are the most critical asset inside of any business. The success of staff creates the success of your business.
The way you feel when you go to work should dictate whether you are in the right place or not. Yes, you are not going to feel like going to work and performing at a high level every day. However, your positive days should far outweigh the negative days. If you find yourself not wanting to go to work on most days, you need to evaluate what you are doing, what the reasons are and where do you go from here. People are not meant to drive themselves crazy every day going to work. You will spend most of your life going to work, so you might as well enjoy what you are doing. So, what happens if you find yourself having the worst of days? Here are a few suggestions for you to consider:
This is where we are leading when we discuss business morale and personal morale. The morale of people will build your culture. Do you do anything together as a group or does everyone come to work and go home with little to no interaction. Ensure as a business that you are harnessing a positive work culture. From personal experience, there is nothing worse than coming to work and hating life and the company. No one deserves this. As a contributing staff member, make sure that you are getting involved to create a positive culture. Don’t sit idly by complaining!
