In each episode of the Daily Dose of OPTIMISM!, I want to share acts of goodness that will drive and will earn both human and financial prosperity, as we work our way out of this.
The following is a lightly edited transcript of the video below.
In today’s “Daily Dose,” I want to talk to you about the wonderful gestures that so many companies are making on behalf of their employees. There are many, many of these, but I was really loving the actions of University of Minnesota president/CEO, Joan Gabel. What she basically said to her educators was:
Look, we know you’re not only schooling our people, but you’re now also schooling your own children who may be at home. Don’t worry about keeping track of your hours, your time vacation, etc. We know that you’re all doing good, you’re all doing the best you can, and we will all come out in the wash. We will all be better because we trust each other. And we know and have courage and confidence that we’re all doing our best work.
Trust Your People Unconditionally
That seems to be definitely something that’s permeating throughout business.
We’ll have more examples of this as we go along. But the key here is the word trust. I think that what we’re seeing is a wonderful, foundational shift of trusting our people unconditionally to do the right thing, to work the right number of hours, and to get the job done.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if that becomes standard operating procedure as we move out of this?
We're seeing is a wonderful, foundational shift of trusting our people unconditionally to do the right thing, to work the right number of hours, and to get the job done. #Trust #Humanity Click To Tweet
So for today’s “Daily Dose of OPTIMISM”: Trust. Trust for your people. Trust that they’re putting in the right time and trust that they’re going to take care of their family, as well as their organizational needs.
Because we all really are out there doing the right thing. Hope everybody’s having a great day. So stay safe, everybody.
