NEW Posting Series – Is the Golden Rule Selfish?

Embracing the diverse needs and goals of each individual employee is a necessity for any successful leader, and being able to demonstrate appreciation of employees is essential for long-term retention. Whereas most would identify with The Golden Rule as being a universally acceptable code of conduct, it ignores the fact that employees are not simply different from one another, but profoundly so. Instead of knowing what is best for ourselves and then happily projecting that view onto others, this posting series offers an alternative solution to leadership known as The Platinum Rule.
