When you work for a company, you represent them. Even if you are not an official spokesperson, you are being watched, and listened to. The interactions that you have may have long lasting impacts. The same is true inside the building as well as outside the building. People listen and by silent leadership, they will follow suit. How do you represent the company – and what message(s) are you sending?
It is of the utmost importance that you share your passion with those around you. The very idea that people come to work with a purpose is a fading concept. Largely, people drone their way in, perform through the day and speed home to tackle the next part of the day. The paycheck for the family as it were. Why it is important that the employee comes to work – and how do they contribute to the cause? Each position is a part of a bigger picture and it is our responsibility to ensure that the message is not lost in translation. If you hear phrases such as “the company doesn’t care” then the culture has been turned. What will it take to put life back into the workforce? What will it take to create that spark – that desire?
What are the benefits of such a passionate culture? Respond below.
