What we want

Your team members are after a feeling. 

They want to feel like they are important. They want to feel like their work matters. They want to feel like they are in the fold. They want to feel that their leader has their back. They want to feel like it’s ok to share and to disagree. They want to feel like they are growing in their work.

It’s about a feeling. 

Leaders are, in part, the creators of feeling. Means we have to expose our humanity at work. Means we have to be vulnerable. Might mean we have to be uncomfortable. 

The role is changing. How leaders create value is changing in the New Work Economy.
