Eileen's Lesson:
I like Estée Lauder makeup.
Why? Aside from it looking nice on me, everything they sell has my initials on it.
Greetings!

One day, my father was at my house and saw an “EL” makeup case and said, “Wow, that’s amazing, do they have a customization stamper at the store?” I said, “You bet.”

The fact that we want to be treated as an individual isn’t anything new. In fact, Dale Carnegie’s 1936 book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” even has principle #6 dedicated to it: "Remember that a person's name is to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language".

As a manager, we do need to recognize teams, but we must also remember to recognize the individuals. 

Why? Because when your people are contributing at their highest levels, your organization is destined for growth and prosperity. By the same token, when one team member is struggling, your entire organization is at risk. Finding ways to support and develop your employees is one of the smartest moves you can make. 

If you need some assistance unlocking the potential in your people, give us a call.
