Do you even think about your employees risk tolerance?
OK, I know the answer is no….
I traveled this past week and it was a fascinating opportunity to view risk tolerance in action.
Some people have a paper thin mask and it is more a chin strap. Others had a multi-layer mask, AND a face shield and gloves. These would be the people sanitizing their airplane seat before they sat down.
Your employees are the same. They do not have the same tolerance that you do. Some may have more, some less, and you need to be in tune with that. We are finding this to be very important these days.
This is a key element of emotional intelligence that has not gotten a lot of ink.
EQ is about more than empathy.
