Every one of us gets through the tough times because somebody is there, standing in the gap to close it for us.”

 In today’s open working environments,  with global impact, and fast business challenges, both employees and managers may experience varying levels of difficult times.  Mix constant workday stress with multi-cultural, multi-national and multi-generational workforces and the challenges increase daily.   Daily inspiration and motivation can keep the company values in the forefront of worker behavior. 

Positive reinforcement can impact the relationship between employees, clients, vendors and managers.

Examples of someone being present and supportive in a challenging workplace.

 Think back over the last week and ask yourself:

  1. When did someone step in and disrupt or stop an unwarranted or unprovoked tirade on another employee?
  2. Did you speak up when someone in the meeting “over-talked” or effectively silenced another team member’s attempt to provide input, suggestions or feedback?  Or just participate?
  3. Was an employee “frozen out” or given the silent treatment by others and yet, one person on the job stepped up to support or befriend the silenced team member?
What examples have you observed a co-worker / manager  Supported another during tough times?
