How do you feel (not think) about your team? Once a day, try getting out of your head in and into your heart. Softening up a bit is not a weakness. In fact, you will see great strength is found in vulnerability. Trust between yourself and your team is built through shared experiences and humanity. You won’t lose your edge by sharing how much you care about those you work with. When employees are noticed, called upon, recognized, and honored, they engage deeply in the mission of the organization and the work they do.
Successful leaders lead from the heart by modeling company values, respecting differences, and acknowledging the talents and contributions of every individual on the team.
