"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity." --George S. Patton 

Even though General Patton (think WWII) was considered a stubborn, hard-ass of a leader, he certainly had the right ideas about getting people motivated and innovative to take ownership over their development.
Today, even the toughest of leaders are encouraged to show their softer, open side -- and they're the ones win the hearts and minds. 
When leaders are more open, harmonious and connected to those they lead, even the most mundane of tasks are also executed with harmony between all parties regardless of rank. This kind of leadership generates higher levels of engagement, productivity and business results. 
Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guest, Dan Pontefract, Senior Director, Learning & Collaboration at Telus and author of Flat Army: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization.
This will be another great "open leadership" show, so we hope to see you here!
