What can leaders do to create a culture of leadership?
Employers: Your “Open-Door Policy” should mean employees are confident walking in and empowered walking out. How are you creating a culture of autonomy, trust and empowerment?
What can employees do to lead in their workplace – and career?
Employees, ask yourself this question: Are you offering solutions to problems – or just talking about the problems? How are you leading in your position and supporting the leadership?
There is a difference between listening and just waiting to talk.
Communication “Remarkable leaders work to master the fundamentals of human behavior and communication.” @KevinEikenberry What does this mean to you?
