    “The Power of Leadership”

    2009 is here and with it opportunities and disappointments await us, which are primarily within our own control!

    To take advantage of many of these opportunities that present themselves you need high-end employees. Are the “high-end” employees in your company happy?

    The Gallup Organization did a survey a few years ago that identified 12 characteristics of a strong workplace as that workplace is seen through the eyes of the most successful and productive employees, a workplace where the best want to work and stay.

    I see no real changes in the results of the survey as we enter 2009. If your employees can answer the following 12 questions affirmatively, you will probably retain most of your key employees:

    * Do I know what is expected of me at work?
    * Do I have the equipment and material I need to do my work right?
    * At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
    * In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for good work?
    * Does my superior or someone at work seem to care about me as a person?
    * Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
    * At work, do my opinions seem to count?
    * Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel my work is important?
    * Are my co-workers committed to doing quality work?
    * Do I have a best friend at work?
    * In the last six months, have I talked to someone about my progress?
    * This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and grow?

    As a leader in your company, it is your job to make sure your employees can respond with a resounding yes to these questions. If they can, you likely have a strong workplace capable of attracting and keeping top performers at every level from the bottom to the top.

    “Never speak of the times as being hard, or of business conditions as being doubtful. Time may be hard and business conditions doubtful for those who are on the competitive plane, but they can never be so for you; you can create what you want and you are above fear. When others are having hard times and poor business, you will find your greatest opportunities” … William Wattles.

    Have A Good Day!
