Try this Tip: Be accessible. We take this leadership tip from William Vanderbloemen’s recent article in Fast Company.Pope Francis has… been seen getting around Rome in a Ford Focus and a Fiat during his U.S. visit. Personal, handwritten thank-you notes and birthday lunch invitations to the homeless of Rome take priority in his schedule and exemplify his leadership vision. Those who aren’t spiritual leaders should also rethink what their most important responsibilities are—people over processes, names over numbers. Accessibility sows trust and loyalty among colleagues and customers, making other transformations possible.”
