We've all heard of the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." It's good advice.

I have platinum rule when it comes to working with my employees "Ask nothing that you wouldn't ask of yourself." It's a good way to go and works wonders for team building. My team members know that I'll be there in the trenches with them when times are most difficult and the job is the most demanding, and I know my team members will be there with me as well.

I've worked for people who would consistently require that their employees do things that they would never in a million years do. I've known others who would risk the health and safety of their employees for nothing more than a minor time savings. These people always wondered why their employees had such bad attitudes, poor retention and lack of loyalty or dedication to their professional responsibilities.
