Episode 26: “Am I Developing a Team That Will Last?”

According to a study by the Harvard Business Review, more than two-thirds of people who leave their jobs do so because of an ineffective leader. The study also found that poor leadership was the number one reason employees quit their jobs. Ineffective leaders can have a negative impact on employee morale, productivity, and creativity. As a leader, you have the power to create a positive leadership culture where potential leaders flourish. If you create that environment, then people with leadership potential will learn, gain experience, and come into their own.
