I’ve found that the best leaders create inspiring environments where the group of people being led authentically care more for each other, care more for the people they are serving and continue to autonomously develop better and better capabilities in their work. One of the patterns I have found in these environments is the use of “we” language vs. “I” language amongst the team. I believe this to be a leadership imperative.
