The Future of Work With Jacob Morgan

Today, leaders need to be servants.

We used to have this traditional idea of the pyramid where the leader sits at the very top and tells everybody else what to do.

But we're starting to see this kind of inversion of the pyramid where the leader is at the bottom propping everybody else up.

This is called servant leadership.

When you show up to work every day, your job is to help make other people more successful than you.

Here are some tips on how you can practice servant leadership:

  • Remove stressors from the lives of your employees.
  • Show appreciation and recognition to your employees.
  • Understand your employees as individuals, not just as workers.
  • Understand the moments that matter in the lives of your employees.
  • Remove obstacles from the paths of your employees.
