In my younger days I had a job working sales. It was a great job and I had lots of fun, I just wish the hours weren't so long (10-12 hrs per day six days a week). One day I was standing in the parking lot with the owner of the franchise, and he says to me, "we're not doing so well." I replied, " what? sales are up and you and I are doing pretty good." He then says to me, "I judge success by how well my employees are doing." If they are making money and doing well than obviously I am doing well also. If they are not doing well than I'm not doing good by them, and must work harder to help them achieve their goals." So, now I wonder, how should employers judge their success? Are they successful business men and women if they are flush and their employees are struggling? When I look into the parking lot at work, and the only cars belong to management and the owner, what does that say?
