The world is made up of different types of people. That is what makes it interesting.
We all have different likes, dislikes, attitudes, looks.....and at the end of the day, we are products of our environments.
Leaders take heed to the differences and at the same time work to connect the diversity so that the best results are the outcome. The best results for the client, the team and the organization - not just one-sided results.
Knowing that people are different - that means that each leader is different to. Do you relate well to the leader on your team? Have you spent time understanding who they are, why they do what they do, how they got into this role?
We expect the leaders to make this effort - the effort to get to know the team. Why can't we? It works in the opposite direction too, doesn't it?
