Get Your Walking Shoes On

Leaders are always in motion. Whether physically or in their minds, movement is happening. As a leader, you need to get your walking shoes on and visit everyone who is on your team – and daily. Get to know them. Get to know what they like, what makes them happy. Find out what makes them crazy. Ask them about their ideas on how to improve the business. Discuss what customers are saying to them that can make the business better.

With walking shoes, a leader can really make a difference in the morale of their team, the productivity of the organization and even the creativity of their ideas. With walking shoes, the presence of the leader is know and felt – relationships and trust can grow in the path of those shoes.
