As a leader, your job is not to fix people.

It’s about helping your team make a change in their mindset and or behavior.

You can’t make someone change.

They must want to grow.

You aren’t a repairman.

You are a gardener.

Be a great question asker and if you listen well, your employees may teach or help you more than you help them.

My new book, The Greatest Motivational Tool, will help you to become a better gardener… a better question asker… and a better leader and developer of relationships.
