If you have good, human relationships with your people, you will have to work hard to screw up as a boss. The easiest and most common way to help relationships grow and thrive is through conversations.
So, what’s a conversation? It’s where each person gets to speak while the others listen. It doesn’t mean nodding while you think of what you want to convey next. In a conversation, what everyone says matters.
Don’t worry about the topic. Start with what you share in common.
