In a recent article, Fortune asked the question: “What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time?” to China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work Institute” in “The one quality all leaders must have.” Her advice? “Start by scheduling a couple of hours with each [direct report], just to talk.” These “just to talk” meetings aren’t intended to waste valuable work time or swipe the company card for a free lunch. They’re intended to build trust between the leader and individuals. Gorman points out that “trust, more than anything else impacts your success as a leader. The more trust you cultivate, the better you lead, the more you achieve, and the higher you climb.”
