What about your team? Are you giving them a rich and fertile place to grow, or is it barren and destitute? Do you provide the team nutrients and opportunities to grow (compliments, recognition, challenging assignments) or do you constantly dig up or neglect the seeds? As Dutch Speaker Alexander den Heijer identified:
When A Flower Doesn't Bloom, You Fix The Environment In Which It Grows, Not The Flower.
- Alexander den Heijer
