    Building good relationships with your employees is a type of investment; you invest your emotions. To some extent, the emotional investment is an excellent choice for managing employees’ hearts and minds . Especially talented employees tend to be dismissive of small favors. However, if you can make them feel that you really truly care for them , then you will have a bumper harvest in the future.
    Emotional investment in an employee can effectively stimulate the employee’s potential ability so the employee would have a strong sense of mission and dedication. Another benefit to emotional investment is that employees will have a “sense of belonging,” and this “sense of belonging” is one of the keys for employees to give their “willing to do.” Having good relationship with your employees will make them feel secure. That is very important because no one wants to be excluded from the manager ‘s attention, and no one wants to become the object of dismissal. In my conclusion, intangible rewards could be more effective than tangible rewards.

  2. Prof. Bryant, I have some info on an interesting assessment that has dramatically lowered turnover. I’m not a sales guy, just interested in the topic. Can we chat? Greg Sparzo
