Take those darn barriers away , please!
We are strong, beautiful people who can run through or jump over hurdles. Walls are nothing but physical barriers that we must find ways to break though to reach our goals. We can go over, under and through them with strength and determination. But sometimes, we need encouragement from those who have the power to help us on our journeys. It's a new day for my colleagues and me. Things are truly looking up and are a lot different. The staff is excited because they are seeing changes everywhere. Sometimes when things go wrong it is so hard to wait for changes to be made to make things better. But when they come--they come with a bang. I am so happy that my workers are happy on the job--but I am more excited that they feel like they matter. That's how it is in life--people need to have assurances that they are important and that they truly matter. When the company that you work for takes an interest in your pain, you will see smiles bubbling over when barriers to their jobs functions are taken away. The lesson for today for employers is this....Listen to your workers and give them the tools necessary to do their jobs and see their productivity increase tenfold. I have a question for you? How long would you keep an employee in a key position when that person is not being productive?
