This Valentines Day I ask you to consider this:
Leadership: If you want your employees to be completely devoted to YOUR cause, you MUST be devoted to them… If people trust you as a leader, they will stay engaged and do whatever it takes to help you and your team be successful.
They will leave.
Carey Lohrenz is the author of the Wall Street Journal Best Seller “Fearless Leadership: High-Performance Lessons from the Flight Deck.”, a motivational speaker and leadership expert.
