What are the marks of the most effective teams? Is it their performance? Cohesion? Strength of identity and brand? Well, we’d argue that all those are actually symptoms of a deeper, more important reality – that everyone on the team buys in, commits, and cares. Think about it, when people care more, they are willing to give more, do more, and invest. And when people care more, the team becomes so much more than the sum of its parts.

But how do we get people to care more? What if we feel stuck in trying to get people to give their best? It’s a universal leadership requirement…and a universal challenge.

So, in this week’s episode, we explore seven strategies that leaders can apply to encourage their people to care more. These aren’t “hacks” or tricks to improve compliance. Instead, these are basic but powerful leadership habits to invest in others so that they are willing to reciprocate. Remember, no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care. Let’s become more intentional in caring for others; it often leads to a reciprocation of care back.

Check out this week’s new episode! We believe it will be well worth your time, ultimately helping you to lead more intentionally this week. If you find it helpful, we encourage you to share it with a friend or colleague too.
