GARY BURNISON: How do you inspire your staff? Well ultimately, leadership is about making others believe.

One piece of advice that I got some years ago that I always try to hold myself is that is whenever you have any interaction with an employee, with a colleague, just check yourself — does that person feel better after the conversation than before.
