When we think about the workplace, it’s easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day grind and forget the importance of relationships. But as award-winning attorney Claudia Williams reminds us in the latest LIFT podcast, relationships are the foundation of any successful organization. After all, people don’t want to feel like cogs in a machine–they want to feel like valued members of a team. And that starts with strong, positive relationships between leaders and employees. By creating an environment where people feel heard and respected, leaders can inspire loyalty and trust – and that leads to better performance and results.
In this episode Richard and Claudia discuss:
- What does it mean to be a Curious Leader?
- How can we build greater relationships at work?
- How can leaders build a place where people love to work, in the new world we live in?
- How do you create a more effective employee performance review?
