"What would happen if your organization became the place where dreams come true?"

"What would happen if your organization became the place where dreams come true?"

A dream can change the world ... at least the world of the dreamer. Aspirations are a powerful motivator, and every day men and women walk the halls of your organization carrying amazing hopes and dreams.

When you think about your people, do you know what they dream to accomplish? Have you had conversations about their hopes? Perhaps, there is no greater way to win their hearts than to help them reach their goals. Think about the people who helped you along the way. Were there people who believed in you and gave you opportunities, even when you were undeserving? Have you paid it forward by believing in someone else?

Dreams come in all shapes and sizes. Some dream of adopting a baby. Others hope to purchase a home or achieve a fitness goal. For some, the plan is to complete a degree, while others want to travel the world. Great organizations Foster Dreams through conversations, encouragement, connections, and belief.

This idea may feel bizarre or, at least, counterintuitive. After all, organizations normally look to extract value from their employees. Fostering dreams is a different way to think. It gives an organization the opportunity to add value to its team members, and when that happens, performance improves.

However, a word of caution ... if your only motivation in helping others reach their dreams is the hope of raising their level of productivity, you will never Win the Heart. Only genuine caring leads to caring.

What would happen if your organization became the place where dreams come true? Make the commitment to Foster Dreams and watch what happens. Someone's world will be changed, and it just might be yours.
