How to become a better leader and get more out of the people who follow you.

People do good work when they are in a good mood. It is easy to let the protection of their moods slip if they are not getting the proper amount of balance and in their life. I define balance as a combination of proper rest, less meetings, ownership, and contribution.

If your team is burned out, the team’s work is likely to get burned.

I deeply respect the leadership methods of entrepreneur Jason Fried.

Below are two interviews with Jason on how he goes about making sure his team’s mood and work is optimized. I hope you can put at least one idea from the conversations into action.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
