    GENERAL BUSINESS INTEREST


    Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Feel Safe To Take Risks
    Forbes
    The human ingenuity within any organization is its greatest competitive advantage. Yet the fear, complacency and outright disengagement that can exist within its walls are the biggest barriers to leveraging it. The number one responsibility of any leader is to create an environment that not only engages their workforce, but draws out the best of what they have to offer. The best thinking. The best creativity and innovation. The best strategy and business execution. The best customer service and quality control. The best accountability and collaboration. The organizations that are the most successful at this are those that build and sustain the strongest competitive advantage over the long haul. Easier said than done of course.
