People shouldn’t have to choose between a successful career and a happy home life. ~ Harry Gray
Most of us love to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. That’s one of the reasons people go to work for a company.
If you work at Microsoft, for example, you feel motivated by knowing that the mundane tasks in your morning in-box contribute directly to worldwide advancements in information technology. If you work for Acme Plumbing you are energized by being part of one of the top repair outfits in your community. Or, if you work for Angelo’s Restaurant, you take pride in serving some of the best Italian cuisine in your part of town.
The other things that motivate you, however, are deeply personal. You go to work to accomplish your dreams, to have a nice home, to acquire nice things for your kids, and maybe a cabin at the lake.
Good leaders realize that most people are happiest when their work life and home life are balanced. A good coach helps his/her people align their own personal dreams, goals and plans with the organization’s vision, values and objectives. When people realize that their company is a vehicle for their personal and family fulfillment, productivity and job satisfaction rise accordingly.
