As a leader, you should care about your followers – what does that look like, and how do you implement it?
What I like about this article is that it provides three key areas that you should look at when interacting with your followers – empathy, kindness, and compassion. The article then provides three ways that you can make sure that you DO interact with your followers – weekly walkabouts, paying attention, and using your calendar. The first part gives you ideals to strive for; the second gives you some methods that you can use.
The article brings home that the best IDEALS have no value if there is no ACTION. Not everyone in a leadership position has a background in taking actions to make other people feel special. By following the three SIMPLE and ACTIONABLE methods in this article, you will be well on your way to becoming a servant leader.
