Care and Growth Applied – Know Your People:

In order to lead consistently with the Care and Growth Model the leader needs to know his or her subordinates as people and not just as employees. In this module you will gain insight into what you would know about people who were fundamentally valuable to you and what you should do to gain that information.

At the end of this module you will be able to:

  • Understand the implications of your fundamental contract with your subordinates
  • Establish a list of the 7 things you would know about someone if they were intrinsically important to you.
  • Apply that list to your current subordinates.
  • Know what you need to do maintain that information.
