Love-Leaders Focus On Family

The holiday season is a time for celebrating with loved ones, and for many of us, that means spending time with our families. As a love-leader, it's important to understand the value of family and to prioritize it in your own life. Not only is this important for your own well-being, but it's also essential for leading and guiding your team.

One of the key ways that love-leaders demonstrate their understanding of the importance of family is by setting a positive example for their team. This means taking time off to spend with loved ones, and encouraging others to do the same. It's important to create a culture within your team that values and prioritizes family time, and to be understanding and flexible when team members need to take time off to celebrate the holidays or attend to personal matters related to their family.

Another way that love-leaders can show their support for their team's family commitments is by being proactive in planning and organizing team events and activities. During the holiday season, this might mean scheduling team gatherings or events that are family-friendly, or offering options for team members to bring their loved ones along. This can help to create a sense of community and connection among team members, and can also help to foster a sense of inclusivity and support for those with family responsibilities.

I will always remember the first time I had a leader invite my family to a meeting. It was my interview. When I first interviewed with Lantech, Doug Grosse was the Southern US Director of Sales. I knew that he was someone I wanted to work for, when invited for an onsite interview at headquarters in Louisville, KY, Doug invited my wife to go so that she could meet everyone and learn about the company as well. From that day, anytime Doug would come into town, he would invite my whole family out to dinner. When they couldn't join, he would always order my wife food and dessert for the kids. It was no surprise to me when I saw Doug with his daughters. They always came first. No matter what.

In addition to setting a positive example and being proactive in planning, love-leaders can also support their team's family commitments by being understanding and flexible when it comes to work schedules. This might mean offering flexible work arrangements, such as the ability to work remotely or to adjust work hours to accommodate family obligations. By being understanding and accommodating, love-leaders can help to create a work environment that is supportive and conducive to work-life balance.

As a love-leader, it's important to understand the value of family and to prioritize it in your own life. By setting a positive example, being proactive in planning and organizing team events, and being understanding and flexible when it comes to work schedules, you can lead your team to be family focused and supportive of one another's commitments and obligations. By doing so, you can create a positive and cohesive team culture that values and prioritizes family, and that helps team members to feel supported and fulfilled both at work and at home.
