6. FORCED DETERMINATION IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE
Forced determination means you don’t know when to quit and you keep pushing until someone or something vital collapses or breaks. You believe things get done through push, resistance and struggle and you want others to do the same. This can begin at the top and easily spill over to each level of the organization. When people operate in overload it creates a chaotic work environment and is counterproductive. This business approach may get the job done for the short-term, but it is a recipe for future failure. Businesses who continue to operate from forced determination compromise great employees and their future vision.
7. BURNOUT PREVENTION
Depletion, exhaustion and burnout in a work environment will inevitably cause mistakes. Quality will be compromised, costing businesses money and serious credibility issues, along with unnecessary lawsuits. Burned out workers are cynical, aloof, detached, resentful, and feel justified to steal, to cut corners, and to sabotage. The financial and human costs of burn out are beyond measure. A conscious effort to prevent worker depletion increases morale and loyalty, thus increasing the bottom line.
Benefits: Minimize stress, eliminate hostile working environment, reduce losses and maintain credibility.
