I know I’ve been in organizations where I felt tolerated, not valued. The feeling of being valued, heard and an integral part of the team can truly make the difference in your work and personal life. Showing people, as leaders, why and how to make others feel valued – as well as how to communicate how I would want to feel valued – is critical to being in today’s world.
