…To treat people like family and not as mere employees. To sacrifice the numbers to save the people and not sacrifice the people to save numbers.

Leaders of organizations who create working environment better suited for how we are designed do not sacrifice excellence or performance simply because they put people first.

Quite the contrary.

These organizations are among the most stable, innovative and high-performing companies in their industries.

Sadly, it is more common for leaders of companies to see the people as the means to drive the numbers. The leaders of great organizations do not see people as a commodity to be managed to help grow the money.

They see the money as the commodity to be managed and to help grow their people.
