Your people aren’t just warm bodies in a cubicle maze or interchangeable parts in a machine.
They are individuals, each with unique capabilities, hopes, dreams, and a wide-range of other characteristics that make up the human experience.
Your people want to be recognized as individuals. You should know what matters to each of your team members. You should understand what motivates each person.
Don’t assume you know; ask. You might be surprised by their answers.
