The leader who gets the most out of their team, are the leaders who care most about their people.
Managers can drive businesses, but what separates the great companies from the good ones are leaders who care. According to Fernando Vilas, these leaders inspire others to follow them, even in very adverse situations. They understand their employees’ needs, and they genuinely care about them. Not care about them when they want something done or when it suits their interest or purpose, but genuinely caring irrespective of the situation.
To get the very best from your team, you must love your people and show that you genuinely care about them professionally as well as personally.
