Americans are working longer hoursthan ever, especially in this economy. This isnt news to many people, but it should be of concernto leaders in companies who truly care about productivity. More importantly, this situation shouldraise eyebrows if these same leaders have the best interests of Church of Work employees atheart.Its easy to tell if you are a member of the congregation of the Church of Work. When you openyour eyes, are you thankful for the day or thinking about that file folder you left sitting on thenightstand just before turning off the light?For leaders of those who seem to be slaves to their jobs we recommend, well, reminding them ofbetter things.

Not onlythat, but you have some pretty strong opinions about how things should be done in order to meetour annual goals. We appreciate all the hard work you do here.

You are a valuable employee-- and I care aboutyou."Everyone benefits when you build the relationships first, and then go about the work. Be sure tothank the employee for listening to you.
