People making a living deserve dignity and respect in the workplace. As obvious as that sounds, priority is largely placed on trusting business process over the contribution and fundamental needs of people. In response, business leaders are humanizing the workplace and tackling a number of core touch points.

But with truly great leadership, people are willing to follow you, not because you have a higher title but because you inspire them.
