Taqlk about a double edged sword. In my career as a small business owner, I made the fatal mistake of putting all my employees needs before the companies needs. That's right, companies. I committed this error more than once. You see, employee engagement can be a tremendous asset, when it's not overdone. On numerous occasions, I actually did too much for some which angered others and in the long run hurt the business as a result. In addition, I overpaid and over benefitted my staff creating unecessary financial hardships. I still don't think I have learned my lesson.
