How to improve team productivity through effective leadership

28 Jun 2014

This is a great TED talk (Simon Sinek "Why good leaders make you feel safe")!


I love how he talks about the reasons behind WHY some teams work well and have great morale, and the role of great leaders in inspiring that teamwork - it comes down to a circle of trust and safety, and the knowledge of reciprocation.


"Why did you sacrifice your blood, sweat and tears for this person and the team?" "Because they would have done it for me".


And those feelings of trust and safety are emotions, and emotions must be developed and earned rather than required, instructed, or forced.
