…and why should anyone care?
This is the key question Simon Sinek asks in his book, “Start with Why.”
In my role as co-founder of WLP Success, I get out of bed every morning to make a positive impact on how business is conducted in the Middle East in general, and in Dubai specifically.
My 20 years working in teaching, training and coaching in a variety of industries in Dubai and throughout the Middle East has allowed me to observe disrespectful and de-humanising people management practices.
Many employees are motivated by manipulation (the carrot) – the employment package, or the opportunity to be a big fish in a small pond. Many are also motivated by the stick – fear. Fear that they will be fired and lose not only their job, but their residence visa, livelihood, house, kids’ schooling, and ability to pay off loans. Many people who lose their jobs also face the fear of leaving the decent, liberal society that the UAE provides and being forced to return to their home country and face persecution and/or poverty.
My motivation to get out of bed every day is to help senior leadership, managers, and employees to work in a respectful, harmonious work environment. At WLP Success our motto is that we are “Humanising The Workplace with Unconventional Wisdom.”
Why should anyone care?
Employees should care that someone out there has their back.
Employers should care because we’re very good at what we do and we get results.
Human beings should care because we’re all inter-connected. “…We are spiritual beings immersed in a human experience.” Wayne W. Dyer
Through training, coaching and consulting we help organisations reach their potential through their people. We work side by side with our clients to set and meet organizational goals, and reduce fear and stress to encourage creativity and innovation.
I love what I do. That’s why I keep getting out of bed every morning knowing that my work make a difference in people’s lives.
