The 5 C's of Business

The topic of what makes a great leader has been debated for millennia. When you think of the values a mentor has brought to you, it’s often those intangible aspects which are more difficult to define.

In business, it’s tough to be thrown into a new role when you may be good at the work but not as well versed at the people part. It’s easy to point to those who have handled leadership with grace but it’s not a skill you learn in short order. And it can certainly be a balancing act when the company continually reminds you profit is the goal.

Fear can be why strong leadership is often as rare as great customer service.

Communicate 
To impart knowledge or to make known.

Collaborate
To work and learn with another.

Cooperate
To act together for a common purpose or benefit.

Considerate
To show awareness or regard for another's feelings.

Compassionate
To have a feeling of sympathy for another.

Without human elements, your bottom line may not exist.
