What do you need to know about loyalty?

Alan Stein is a corporate performance coach who spent more than 15 years working with the highest-performing basketball players on the planet. In his book Raise Your Game he reminds us that whether you are a CEO, chairman, coach or just a boss of a few people, you work for your people – they don't work for you. When you change your focus from yourself to them, things will drastically change.

Remember people are not loyal to jobs. They are loyal to other people. Strong leadership creates lasting loyalty. Servant leadership focuses on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong, and it should become inherent in all of your leaders. It should become a point of joy, a mark of your organisation, a differentiator and why people stay or join.
