I don’t care whether you come into the office at 8 am.
I don’t care if you choose to work from home or not.
I don’t care if you work from the garage while they fix your car.
I hired you for a job and I trust you to get it done. Just let me know what you need from me to be successful in your role. And I will show up for you.
You don’t need to justify to me why you need a day off.
You don’t need to explain how sick your child is to leave early.
You don’t need to apologize for having a personal life.
Yes, I care about results but I also care about you. We are all human and we are all adults. I lead people. I don’t run an adult day care center.
My advice for anyone hiring:
- Select the right people.
- Agree on deliverables (be crystal clear).
- Provide proper tools and support.
- Get out of their way.
