For all the bosses out there...
Successful leaders are a lot like successful parents...they care for their team like children. Here's a brief list of what resonates for parents...and, as it turns-out, leaders:
- encourage (try new things and to make mistakes)
- teach (right and wrong)
- learn (from them)
- support (during good and bad)
- have fun
- color outside the lines
- give (no return expected)
- invest (time, money, emotion and energy)
- search (for the good)
...and, take the time to watch them dance.
I'm sure you know a few more...send them over.
