How to Treat Your Subordinates

Most likely, you all have a boss. And most likely, you all have some choice words for that boss at times. I’m going with the mass majority of people out there and not talking from experience. I have had some great bosses since my days of slinging pizzas at a local pizza place, but I bet others haven’t had such luck. This post isn’t about me…it’s about a good deed my boss and company did for their staff.

I work with a staff of over 100 people. Sometimes we need a little pick me up! Other days we need more of a pick me up. We had a monthly staff meeting that began as usual. The masses were herded into the meeting room like cattle….mooing and cawing about our day. We were just counting the minutes until we were allowed to leave.

Ten minutes into what I thought was a valuable PPT slide on data, the curtain dropped to reveal 6 brightly decorated boxes. The sound of game show music roared from the stage and out came a host to walk us through the remainder of the meeting. We were showered with prizes and games. We had a chance to laugh and be ourselves in front of our superiors. After the prize giving extravaganza, we were treated to coffee, cookies and snacks…JACKPOT!

Good Deed – If you’re in an industry that doesn’t give out HUGE bonuses…do something nice for your subordinates. It will go a long way.


I'm a regular guy with a regular job. I write for fun, self-reflection and to possibly impart some of my thoughts on those that will listen. I do not claim to be an expert on anything, but have opinions on many things.
