What’s Your Employees’ Biggest Complaint?

I get to be a little lazy in today’s post. I want to link you to Interact CEO Lou Solomon‘s article in the Harvard Business Review, titled, “The Top Complaints from Employees about Their Leaders.”

(See the end of my comments for the link, or click on the screenshot below.)

I like this piece a lot because Solomon goes into the SOLUTIONS to common employer-employee issues, not just the complaints.

I know that as small business owners, and especially practice owners like you, we often think we have all the bases covered when it comes to our employees. Often, it seems like the only way to make someone happy is to give them more of something, like money, or paid time off (i.e., money), or a bonus (i.e., money).

What is often overlooked is your ability to recognize an individual team member’s highest purpose—and how they excel at doing that for you—simply by connecting with them. This can pay off big for both of you.

And you can get some great ideas about how to do a better job of that, plus see some statistics on employees’ top communications-related complaints about their leaders, in Lou’s article in the Harvard Business Review.

Highly recommended.
