Humanizing the workforce should be top-of-mind for leaders as we head into 2022. People have been re-evaluating their lives, what they do for a living, where they want to do it and who they work for.

Curiosity may seem like one of those intangible soft skills. However, it is just as important as being mindful, self-aware, and fostering respectful two-way communication.

The art of delegating doesn’t always come easy to leaders. The trick is to learn how to do it effectively, allowing your team to take on tasks and trusting them to deliver great results.
