Why Are Your People Thinking of Leaving? Understand Your People Better!
To be a successful leader, you have to understand what "makes your people tick," and be able to engage with them emotionally. But how do you use that knowledge to be a better leader?

For a start, if you understand your people, you can adapt your leadership style to meet their needs and the situation you're in. You can learn how to do this with our article, Six Emotional Leadership Styles.

You'll be able to this more successfully if you know how to "read" people, and understand how your own emotions and actions impact others. You can discover more about this in our articles, Empathy at Work and Emotional Intelligence.
