If you worked for me, you’d Lead with Aloha too: An Aloha Business for 2012
If you worked for me, you’d get the Daily Five Minutes, and you’d give it to others. Conversation and win-win agreements would become your m.o.
If you worked for me, I’d expect you to contribute to our company cause — and you’d want to. You’d be a vocal ambassador of our mission and vision because you share it, and we celebrate our progress often.
If you worked for me, you’d be enrolled in my profit-sharing program and be considered my partner, not my ‘employee.’ We’d be an ‘Ohana in Business.
If you worked for me, you’d get a performance appraisal, but quarterly instead of annually. We’d both look forward to them, and we’d mostly talk story about what we’re both learning, and how we’re growing. I want you to feel strong in my company, and I want you to BE strong.
If you worked for me, you’d be expected to take an annual sabbatical as an extension of your earned vacation time, so you could reboot and recharge, and make Aloha very, very personal.
I’m not alone as an employer with a newly improved business model.
It’s 2012 and these are the ways society is shifting, recognizing that work alone cannot rule our lives if we are to be healthy, and make our best contribution to the communities we choose to dwell in.
Life is short, but you CAN have a positive expectancy in regard to what life offers you.
If you don’t have an Employer/Partner who is waking up to the 2012 realities of human well-being, bid them goodbye and look for a new partnership, one which deserves you and your best possible efforts when you do work. Understand your options. To work for someone is only great when you work WITH them, and they with you.
You can also think about starting your own company: Model Me This.
