People are more inclined to trust others and connect emotionally when they feel valued. By involving people in finding solutions or providing ideas, leaders send a powerful message that they value the input of their people.
Creation of Meaning
- People who find meaning in their work are the most fulfilled, persistent and productive.
- True leaders seek to understand what drives their people, what they believe in and value – they notice where others focus their energy and what sparks their enthusiasm.
- By asking questions and really listening to what others have to say, leaders find ways to connect their vision to the passions and values of their people.
- By making their work meaningful, leaders build internally driven commitment and motivation in others.
