Why Good Leaders Make You Feel Safe
Leadership expert, Simon Sinek, talks about what makes a great leader and suggests that creating trust and safety is a top priority. While we usually think of workplace safety in terms of risk to physical well-being, Sinek shares examples of environments where trust and cooperation is present and explains how the business world benefits by taking steps to ensure employees feel secure.
With threats from competitors, new technologies, and unstable economies, it is the leader’s job to establish a safe and secure workplace for employees. When this happens and people are put first in an organization, it leads to greater success, higher profits, and improved morale.
