Is it possible to be a fair boss to someone you'd avoid eating lunch with — or must you learn to like every member of your team?
Very insightful - especially if you `inherit' a team of people you haven't picked yourself - and helpful in dealing with what could be a problem!
Reminds me of some of the literature and reserach on situational leadership theories.
Helpful #leadership advice, especially if you are a #team #leader.

Being able to ask questions requires good listening skills. We were given two ears and one mouth for a reason...we should do twice as much listening as we do talking! :) In adition, "Asking contains the power to engage people.
