Managing with heart and soul

We live in an ever-evolving business world filled with all kinds of rules, regulations and red tape, so much so that instead of focusing on building great teams and engaging staff, our priorities are on the wrong things.

As a result, business owners and managers often get stuck in soul-less leadership which is a primary cause of poor staff engagement, unhappiness, drudgery, and so much more.

As workplaces become more informal and less hierarchical, command-and-control management styles do not fly anymore, particularly when you lead and manage spirited individuals hired for their creative brainpower.

They want thoughtful and caring managers and leaders who can inspire them and give them enough reasons to work diligently beyond a pay cheque.
