Everyone would agree that treating people right is important.
What is discussed a lot less is that different people want to be treated differently.
Some people need more praise and recognition; others want to produce results by working as a high performing team; others tackle their daily job by getting stuff done and crossing stuff off their list.
If that does not complicate things enough for leaders, some people want you to tell them exactly what you want them to do, and then just leave them alone.
Figuring people out, and treating them like they want to be treated, will be a big part of a leader’s success.
