Do you know of one desire that all human beings have?
There's one desire that all human beings have.
Understand this basic human need to build better relationships. Master it to empower people to give their best.
This need, this desire we all have is to feel important.
All of us want to be acknowledged. No matter who we are or our past accomplishments.
We want to feel confident that who we are and what we do matter.
Organizations have mission statements. The hope is that the collective pursuit of a meaningful goal will runoff on individuals and make them feel fulfilled, important, and therefore better performers.
It can happen. Sometimes.
