“If you’re trying to create an atmosphere where you’re empowering and enabling your Salesforce to take the time that they need, to focus on their health or on their family, think again before being super active when you’re supposed to be on leave of your own.” – Jack Wilson in today’s Tip 1231

Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. A little out of order here, but here’s a recent tip from Jack Wilson just after the birth of his son, who’s now almost a month old!
Jack Wilson: What’s going on Daily Sales Tips Community. Jack Wilson here with another tip. Have you heard the quote, Leadership is Action? I think it’s important to remember, but specifically when you’re taking action that you might not be aware of. What I’m referring to is the way you act that other people observe, even though you might not have taken those actions intentionally or deliberately.
So, for example, we live in a world where empowering our Salesforce to take the time away from work, to take mental breaks, and focus on their health is more and more in the limelight. But one thing that I’m starting to see is that leaders that don’t want to take that time away stay involved, when they’re supposed to be on leave or when they’re on vacation. They’re in the Slack channel, or they’re sending emails. And I think the message they’re trying to say is, “Hey, I’m still here. Or let’s keep motivated, or I have your back.” And that’s all well and good. But one of the subtle messages that it sends is even when you’re away, you shouldn’t be away. If I’m here working, I might subtly be hinting that I’m expecting you to do the same.
So if you’re a leader and that’s your intention, keep up the good work. But if you’re trying to create an atmosphere where you’re empowering and enabling your Salesforce to take the time that they need, to focus on their health or on their family, think again before being super active when you’re supposed to be on leave of your own. And you know what? I actually just got home with my newborn son, Weston, so I’m going to take my own advice and go away now. Thanks!
