We follow the leaders we love…
“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” ~Robert Frost
Remember, when your people feel deeply connected, they participate in their life (and work!) with a different level of commitment. Don’t forget: connection builds rapport; rapport builds trust; and the intimacy of trust allows us to be emotionally engaged.
This week, try showing people you care by acknowledging their behavior and contribution. You can do that by either word or actions…recognize work in front of others, give credit on projects, write a thank you note, or simply smile and say thank you.
