Taking Care of your Tribe
I worked as an animal welfare professional for two decades where the mission of protecting animals was clear. What became the most important thing to focus on was ensuring the team of people who did the work could thrive. When the team was energized, empowered, cared for and trusted the animals were the beneficiary, the mission was reached at a deeper level. No matter what the mission of the company may be, it all comes down to the teams who do the work. Trust is the foundation for teams to thrive and creating that is the leader’s greatest responsibility.
