Sharing this article from Inc., because I believe in leading with kindness. Taking the time to listen to others and their life stories offers insight to who they are and what their values are. People are a valuable resource, not a commodity to be traded. Empathy, sincerity and vulnerability should be embraced as a strength, these traits are learned through experience and not a text book. People are individuals with potential to be outstanding team members with great ideas to share and make this a better world.
