In the first few weeks of 2018, there have already been nine school shootings that resulted in serious injury or death.

One of the foundational practices I detail in my book, The Respectful Leader, is looking for diamonds in the rough. Leaders who acknowledge their team's excellence in skills and perspectives foster an environment where employees feel respected. Respect creates greater loyalty among employees and commitment to go the extra mile. This recognition also inspires a growth culture where team leads are empowered and motivated to further develop their leadership skills. Forbes Contributor Jeff Boss recently interviewed leadership coach Sacha Lindekens, author of How Leaders Improve: A Playbook for Leaders Who Want to Get Better Now. The book details the RIPEN…
