At Morphos, we understand it is always about people
Families, Corporations, Non-profits, Business Partnerships, Sales Teams, Manufacturing Line, etc…
At the core… it is about people like you and I.
- “Organisations Don’t Innovate, People Do!” – M.Ditkoff
- “The way your employees feel is the way your customers will feel. And if your employees don’t feel valued, neither will your customers.” – Sybil F. Stershic
- “Everything rises and falls on leadership” – John C Maxwell
- “Companies with engaged employees outperform those without by up to 202%” – Dale Carnegie
- “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family” – Mother Teresa
The question that begs asking… do we really know people?
- Most business leaders think that financial rewards drive performance
- Our Response: To a certain extent, yes. But do also consider how recognition and flexible work arrangements may contribute to retaining staff and minimising burnout
- Some business leaders believe the larger the team, the better the performance
- Our Response: Yes, provided you can manage the conflicts arising from increased diversity, and ensure that no one is loafing around
- Some managers think that people management is the HR’s job
- Our Response: If you have a strong HR they can take care of the legal and admin requirements, they might also put in place practices to ensure workers are hired for the right fit, but day-to-day people management is the job of the line manager. You can observe performance, give timely feedback and rectify behaviours more effectively than HR
