Creating good employees. Part 13 

Who have you hurt? 

How many times has your decision or indecision hurt someone in life or business? How many times did you know 100% that you could have done something amazing if you had only stepped up and done the right thing? Did the thing that your gut told you to do but missed that opportunity?  

Maybe it was in a cash lane when a little old lady didn’t have the extra 5 bucks to buy something? Maybe it was something simple like telling someone that they had toilet paper stuck to their shoes. Or it could be something as simple as a “Hey you look amazing today” Who have you indirectly hurt by not telling them that they did a great job? That’s the point I am trying to make. You could have helped yet indirectly hurt that intern by not telling them how good a job they did. 

Why is it so difficult? 

Why are humans so self-centred and obnoxious to others. We all wish to be treated nicely. Yet we do not treat others the way we wish to be treated, but we all expect others to treat us nicely. This is a revolving door that we could spin positivity on vs negativity. A simple hello and a smile can brighten someone’s day.  

A box of donuts at work can send spirits soaring and maybe even create a sugar rush for an extra boost in the morning. Just make sure you have coffee as well on standby when the sugar rush turns into sleepy staff.  

Giving a little. 

A great workplace is not only doing the work and getting paid for it. A great workplace creates or rather should create a positive nurturing environment. A team of people all pulling the cart in the same direction. An orchestra playing that wonderful symphony not a single member is out of step or out of tune.  

This takes a tremendous amount of effort. This takes foresight and knowledge. But not the university background, several degrees type knowledge.  

Reading people. 

So many “stupid” people graduate from all kinds of schools and educational facilities every day. Stupid is a strong word. Let’s call it something else. Let’s call them book smart and not stupid. Reading and learning are one thing, but having intelligence is another. Being able to fit into a workplace and being able to read people and cater to them accordingly is on another level.  

Everyone must fit in… In some way, shape or form we conform to a place. We take baby steps until we can eventually tip-toe our way into a group where we can then be ourselves. Expose our true selves so to speak.  

This is where leaders and a people person can help. They can sense this easing in and can greatly help with simple introductions and kind words.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
