Many business leaders don't care why employees do anything as long as they follow the company's rules, processes, cultural norms and laws.

 

But we've found that leaders can create and sustain stronger business results if they understand — and manage — how employees approach their work every day. When employees' thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are aligned with their daily work, they do that work better.
