Truth You Can Act On:
  1. Reward your employees. Create an employee of the month program that ties into your vision and values. Make sure that your rewards are awesome. Use Borshoff as an example, who gives premier garage parking to the winner of the “Awesome Borshoffer of the Month” award.
  2. Optimize your workspace. When redesigning your space, do research by asking your employees key questions to understand their needs. Build the space based on your employee feedback and not on the last Forbes article you read with cool pictures of an open concept and foosball tables. For Borshoff, this meant constructing different “creativity spaces”, allowing employees to find a place to work each day that will inspire them.
  3. Communicate authentically. As a leader, reflect on how you bring trust and authenticity in all of your life and written communications. Be proactive on this, thinking about it every day before you start. Then at the end of each day, reflect on how you did and what you could do to improve.
