Employees are stealing from Target, Make sure your inner circle isn’t stealing from you
There’s no surprise that theft is a big problem in the retail industry. This theft leads to businesses losing tons of revenue by the end of each year. One of the nation’s largest retailers, Target, has faced this same problem coming from within the organization.
This is another sign for us to be cautious of who we invite to be in our personal and professional circles. Be careful who you share your energy with. Because this could result in you hurting your own progress professionally and personally due to the leeches you have around you in your network.
Target suffered from a huge blow financially due to several employees involved in systematic theft operations. The organization trusted people in leadership roles and on the floor to not only take care of their customers walking through the front door, but also to take care of the business as if it was their own. This revelation of theft shocked Target and their loyal customer base but highlights the idea of ensuring you know the integrity of those you let into your inner circle.
Trust is what could make or break a personal or professional relationship. When you have this you can collaborate with others which will support your growth in any domain in your life. Trust is tricky and this incident reminds us of this. It is difficult to get, but very easy to break. It should not be granted as easily; it must be earned and constantly evaluated. Be careful who you invite in your circle.
When allowing someone in your circle, you have to seriously evaluate how they take care of themselves. How could you expect or trust someone to be mindful of your energy and trust if they aren’t mindful of themselves? A lot of people don’t trust themselves. This is why they are in the same spot that they were in last year.
This is another reminder of how sneaky human beings can be. But I’m also reminding you to stay close to those you do trust. Comment below who you trust.
