Effective leaders make people feel loved. They’re not just intelligent, not just experienced, not just driven, candid, inspiring and visionary.
They love people. They heal people. The people that work for them know that what they do is noticed.
They aren’t just a number on the spreadsheet.
Coworkers are known by name…
That sense of purpose is wildly important in any organization or movement. The best leaders know that to get the best results from those that follow them, they have to invest in a relationship.
That’s not by shouting louder, demanding more, being less approachable, or playing politics.
It’s the simple things: Common decency, respect and candor.
