Be a Servant Leader to Make Your People Feel Valued

In an article for Inc., Marcel Schwantes combs the leadership literature and pinpoints three key practices that make employees feel valued. The first of these practices is to simply trust and believe in your people. That means you always emphasize communication, you maintain transparency, and you offer opportunities for employees to further develop.

Second—and related—is to respect your people. Increase collaboration wherever possible and demand that everyone is treated with dignity. When collaboration is high, you will be able to set higher expectations that challenge teams to do their best work.

The last practice is to be responsive to your people’s needs. Each of your employees is motivated by different factors, and you should attempt to engage them accordingly. Specialize your incentives to keep people engaged and excited to work.
