<p><strong>Brighton, Mass. &mdash; May 4&nbsp;</strong><br />According to Daniel Harkavy, author &quot;Becoming a Coaching Leader,&quot; companies in every industry are becoming more and more filled with employees suffering from broken or breaking personal lives. <br /><br />Even though they might appear to be doing well, employees at all levels are struggling with failing relationships at home, serious health issues, addictions, directionless lives, etc., which hurts companies in countless ways.<br /><br />Employees can&#39;t just leave their &quot;stuff&quot; at the door, and if<br />managers and bosses think they can, the company is headed for serious trouble.<br /><br />For a company and teams within the company to achieve long-term success, CEOs and other leaders must actively decide to coach their employees, have the conviction to help them improve their lives.<br /><br />&quot;When we risk diving into our people&#39;s lives with the<br />kind of convictions and courage that can truly help them, we partner with them in a way that enables them (and leaders) to make better life decisions,&quot; Harkavy said. &quot;By choosing to become a &#39;coaching leader,&#39; you show your<br />employees that they are valuable and matter to you.&quot;<br /><br />The weight of emotional baggage employees are carrying is no longer just a little stress.&nbsp; </p><p>Taking initiative to help employees overcome life challenges found outside of the office is a vital tactic for any leader and company that wants to succeed.</p>
