HERE ARE 6 EASY WAYS TO SHOW YOUR TEAM YOU CARE

by Tim Peters (www.timpeters.org)

#1 – RECOGNIZE THEIR WORK VIA SOCIAL MEDIA

Tweet it, Post it, Pin it, Instagram it.  Put it on the Vine if you have to.  But get the word out that you have great people on your team.

#2 – Remember the details of their lives

Know their spouses and kid’s names, remember anniversaries and birthdays and celebrate with them accordingly.

#3 – Randomly send notes

Don’t wait for a special occasion to encourage them.  Handwrite a note telling them why you’re thankful they are on your team.  I had a boss that would periodically leave a sticky note on my keyboard.  Not a big deal, but it was nice to know he took the time to show he cared.

#4 – Regularly Pray

Pray for them, Pray with them, Pray over them

#5 – Reach out in times of crisis

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to remember.  Yes, they might have a big extended family and an army of friends, but you still need to take the time to reach out to them in times of crisis.

#6 – Respectfully challenge and encourage

Take the time to help your staff grow by encouraging them in their strengths and challenging them to live up to their God-given potential.

Do you want to be the kind of leader people will follow?  Be a leader who cares.
