Fake it and your team won’t take it!
Supporting your people will save you money and enhance your organisational outcomes. However, it is vital that the reason for supporting your people is because it is the right thing to do and is sincerely motivated. The top priority was supporting with warmth. Addressing other needs was considered incredibly helpful it was often said, “the most crucial thing is that the organisations and people who support us genuinely care.” Putting supports in place solely out of obligation, because it is financially prudent or to reduce risk, may be more hurtful than helpful. The most frequently noted success factor in support initiatives was buy-in right from the top—the belief that supporting our people is valuable in and of itself, because rarely will you find a breed of dedicated, passionate people more deserving of support.
Yes that’s important but more important is concern and care – and listen. Sometimes it feels lonely. Anon - Japan
