If you can't understand why all your staff are coming up to you and giving you a big hug, it's because it's National Hug Your Boss Day - honest!
What do you mean, you just thought that it was because you are a great leader and a nice allround good egg?
Sorry to disappoint you, they've been prompted to do it by a recruitment company after a bit of PR!
There's nothing wrong with that of course, and it does get you thinking about your role as a leader....
For example ...
- Would your staff want to hug you (and I don't mean for your 'looks')?
- Do you really deserve a hug as a boss?
- What could you do to deserve one?
Here's a simple suggestion - take some action by going out of your way today to spot people in your team doing a great job, and let them know (publically or privately depending on the individual!)
You might not get a hug, but you'll give them a good feeling (and that should give you a nice hug inside!)
