Good leaders love those in their care. If you don’t love them, it will show and they will know.
Consider your favorite restaurant. Imagine ordering your preferred dish and it arrived a sloppy mess as though the chef could not have cared less. You would think about that experience before returning and ordering the same item. You would always remember that negative experience and the lack of care and attention your dish received.
When you spend time with those you lead they will soon begin to notice if you are phoning it in or if you are taking time to genuinely know them.
If you love your followers put in the time and effort required to lead them in ways that are meaningful. Look for ways to make them feel special. Make every effort to bring joy into their lives.
