Google and me are of the same mindset.  Well, ok, I don’t really get search engine algorythms or pay-per-click bidding stuff but, when it comes to developing leaders, we are linked.

I am often brought into companies where a leader has disconnected from his/her team. Once this occurs, people feel orphaned and begin to operate in a system of independent study versus a team of like-minded people focused on clear goals.
