According to the Harris Poll Toxic Bosses Survey, a staggering 85% of American workers believe that having a respectful and nurturing manager would greatly enhance their engagement at work. Dan Shannon experienced this firsthand.  He was entrusted with the task of leading a customer service team that lacked engagement and experienced a high annual turnover rate of 40%.  The employees had been conditioned to think that their work was a job, not a career.  Furthermore, making mistakes and seeking assistance were viewed as a major inconvenience.  Dan used the upside-down pyramid philosophy of a servant leader to influence…

Unleashed potential is a hidden gem within your team/organization. The leading indicator for…
