A good friend sent me a short article about a life lesson one CEO taught him. One of the points of the article is that a good CEO at work , like the father of a household, needs to make their employees (kids) feel safe.
The money quote from the article…
“What I loved most about working for your dad for all those years was how safe he made us feel. Even when times were tough, you trusted he would see things through. You knew he would do whatever he needed to – and you knew it would work out because he was in charge. It was a good feeling”.
At work, do you make your employees feel safe? At home, do you make your family feel safe? What’s the difference?
