Human Spirit: Handle with Care

When my wife and I were raising our young children, we used to speak in terms of “not breaking their spirit.”  We corrected them and even punished them when necessary – but always attempted to do so in love.

The same idea, I believe, applies in the workplace. If you are in a position of leadership, you have great responsibility to guide, mentor, and at times correct, without breaking the spirit of your employees.  Correction should be done in private, praise in public, and encouragement should be the norm not the exception.

The most valuable asset you have in your office is your employees.  They hold within them, unique God-given human potential that could catapult your organization to unimaginable heights.  This potential is yours to nurture and develop as their leader – handle with care.
