More Than a CEO – A Contributor to Employee Opportunities

The following is an excerpt from a Bridgeforce Consultants’ article on LinkedIn.

Leadership Can Make a World of Difference

John Sanders gave me his time; time that the company takes from me. John and my colleagues gave me the resources to support the work Bridgeforce takes from me. However, time and money are not the only things igniting a flame in my everyday attitude. It was John’s leadership that made me feel like a valued employee.

John’s way of operating created a room for me in Bridgeforce’s house that was employed with a functional family. His leadership style shapes and maintains the company’s culture. By extension, the whole leadership team carries the same values.

This shared sensibility allows Bridgeforce leaders to be as effective as possible when working with clients. It shows in the results. With an average 4.5 out of 5 customer satisfaction score, Bridgeforce has proven its team delivers. John shows no hesitation to roll up his sleeves and work shoulder to shoulder with clients and our team to get successful results. The team delivers externally because the CEO consistently delivers internally.

“Time and money are not the only things igniting a flame in my everyday attitude. It was John's leadership that made me feel like a valued employee.”

Leaders lead by example. This may seem obvious, but it is not always practiced. An employee who feels relevant, seen and appreciated will be motivated with that sense of recognition. When there’s a spotlight on an individual’s work, it adds importance to the deliverables they produce. Like an automobile, when it’s fed with the right fuel it produces rewarding results and longer commitment to its purpose. You could be the best driver in the world but if you don’t maintain your car, you won’t get very far for long. If your car breaks down on you, you have nowhere to drive to.
