The most important thing to do as a leader is energise and enthuse your people. Make them want to follow you. Act like a top boss, always being positive and doing what you say you will do.
Whilst it sounds so simple, why is it that so few bosses do it well?
Recent research in the USA identified that most employees don’t give or receive anywhere near the amount of praise they should. Because of that, they are less productive and in many cases, completely disengaged in their jobs. According to the US Department of Labour, the number one reason why people leave their jobs is because they don’t feel’ appreciated’ by the boss or Organisation.
