There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be successful and satisfied with your life. However, if you’re chasing success while sucked into playing the social comparison game, you’re more than likely in a success trap … chasing success for all the wrong reasons. The result of being caught in the success trap and playing the social comparison game is you often feel like a failure.
Where 84% of executives believed their employees had high trust with their companies, only 64% of employees agreed that they trusted their employers. The problem here is many leaders are failing to view the importance of trust, because they don’t believe there is a trust problem … and yet the evidence clearly shows there is.

This includes adequate training and development of skills and appropriate use of any equipment. There is also a responsibility on employees to follow occupational health and safety guidelines which are in place to protect them from harm.
What we know is when you genuinely try to understand others, when you start with a clear intention to want to listen empathically, to understand them and to help them find ways to make life better for them, not only is the outcome going to be good for the other person, but reciprocity kicks in and ignites neural chemicals in your brain that make you feel good, increases your focus, increases your clarity and increases your creativity.
