What Employees Need from Leaders

Just ran across an amazing little article from the Harvard Business Review entitled What Employees Need from Leaders. It was written by Dr. Cleve Stevens of Owl Sight Intentions Inc. I thought it was a great summary. In short, employees need:
  • To love and be loved--defined as focused concern and action
  • To grow
  • To contribute
  • Meaning
This list certainly resonates for me, and I can do better at helping the employees I work with find those needs better met with my leadership.
