Relationship with personnel
Whilst researching leadership, I came across an interesting and insightful quote, which I would share here:
“Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton, founder of Walmart and Sam’s Club
This instantly reminded and reinforced the fundamentals of transformational leadership, which elevates the aspirations of individuals and the organization as a whole by showing a genuine care about people and their development. Fostering the relationship with employees and/or followers has a positive influence on their values and corresponding behaviour resulting in increased motivation and, in effect, productivity.
