Success begins and ends in your ability to build well-established, trusting relationships. All great teams are founded on strong relationships and solid trust because that is the best way for everyone to move forward. As leaders, we need to step away from our computers and get out of our offices to build the ties-that-bind. The people we are leading deserve that from us. Sadly, we don’t accomplish this as often as we should. Unending meetings, emails and lists-upon-lists seem to occupy our top priorities. We quickly get unbalanced and lose focus of our role as a leader which is to lead people into a brighter, better future and also proves the leadership quality. It will always be about people and the important relationships we build with them.
