Who are you going to encourage today?  Another way to ask this is, “Which one of your associates needs confidence, courage, or hope?” Chances are very good that you have at least one employee today desperately in need of one of those three.

Managers play a unique role. By the virtue of your title, employees look to you for help.  But your title alone will not suffice; they need you to show up! Mother Teresa once wrote, “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”

So, here’s how you can choose. Select one employee who needs more confidence to do their job. Select another employee who needs to take a risk but lacks the courage. And finally, select an employee who seems to be losing hope for their job or maybe even their career. Show up with the intent of encouraging them and the words will come to you.

Be encouraged,
