Interested in Being a Better Leader?

The essence of leadership is a willingness to align yourself with what you believe to be important,  and the interests of the people who look to you for direction.

Nothing matters more than your recognition that they matter. And until they know it, they’re unlikely to care very much.

You are measured every day in how you demonstrate that, often in the most subtle of ways.

When morale, job performance and loyalty are less than desired, that’s the thing that needs to change the most.

Why will they want to work their hearts out for you?

As you may be aware, the #1 reason people leave their job is because of a bad boss or manager. That stated another way is a leader who doesn’t know how to demonstrate caring about people.
