As a business leader, do you encourage your staff each day?

Scripture instructs us to "encourage one another, day after day" (Hebrews 3:13 NASB).

One of the most cost-effective, and least costly, employee motivation programs is consistent encouragement. Look for honest ways to encourage the work of each colleague every day. By praising jobs well done and customers effectively served, you will get more of the behavior and work effort you desire. I watched a manager compliment a sales clerk after dealing with a difficult customer and saw the clerk perk up immediately.

In the Word

Scripture instructs us to "encourage one another, day after day" (Hebrews 3:13 NASB).
