While people expect fair pay for their services, we all know that money isn't king. Nevertheless, when it comes to business we all too often act as if it were. We think purely in terms of salaries, bonuses, and people's positions on the org chart.
Around the world, governments and businesses face a conundrum: high levels of youth unemployment and a shortage of job seekers with critical skills. How can a country successfully move its young people from education to employment?
"Publicly stating core values and beliefs requires courage because that declaration creates an expectation of specific behavior. Following through with that behavior over time requires commitment. However, if groups or individuals do not examine their values and work to achieve alignment, agreement and acceptance, they have no clear direction. A values statement is a means to that end."
"Developing a values statement is relatively easy; living those values is not."
I remember with crystal clear clarity (not to mention joy and gratitude) the year I quit guilt. I gave it up cold turkey. And my life changed drastically. Years of beating myself up for my shortcomings, mistakes, and failures were erased in the moment I fully understood just how useless guilt is.
What IS Guilt? Guilt is an emotion that occurs when a person believes that they have violated a moral standard.”
To understand where your guilt comes from, you must first revisit your personal values and core beliefs. You may be holding on to outdated programs that no longer serve you as an adult. You may be giving your power away to a belief system that no longer applies to your life. You need to identify who and what defined the moral standards you believe apply to you, as well as what constitutes a violation.
It all starts with CARE. Communicate, Appreciate, Respect, Encourage. This is for everyone. Not just CEO’s and management. All employees. Communicate. Don’t hesitate. Reach out your hand. Introduce yourself.
