Go to the moon and back for your employees, they will do the same for you

sam-adeleke-cape-st-francis-resort-southafricaAn Employee makes a MISTAKE. He comes to me asking for my help. The only thing is, I am not his direct Manager. He said if his manager knows about this, she will make a big issue and will use it to give him a poor rating. This puts me in a really sticky situation.

He is not on my team but he is a very hardworking employee. He just isn’t a ‘Kiss Up’ as his manager wants him to be. So I go on the system, use my authorization and simple as that, the mistake is corrected. Nobody knows. It ends there. He was very happy.

Later on, two of my employees were absent (sick) and he volunteered to stay back to help my remaining team meet a tight deadline. What baffles me is how some managers never get this: * If you go to the moon and back for employees, they will do the same for you. * If you want loyalty from employees, you must first give it. * You can’t expect loyalty from employees if you keep throwing them under the bus It’s reassuring to have a manager who’s got your back.

Do you agree?
