“When I talk to managers, I get the feeling that they are important.
When I talk to leaders, I get the feeling that I am important.”
Alexander Den Heijer
Managers talk AT you.
Leaders talk WITH you.
Leaders also continue to reinforce the feeling of importance you receive from them with every interaction. It’s never a one and done. It is a constant ongoing dialogue bolstered through every conversation and engagement. With great leaders, YOU are always the most important person in the room.
Are you an AT or a WITH?
