In this episode, we discuss the other side of leadership—the attunement/relational side. The attunement aspect is about getting on the same emotional channel with those you lead to know where they are and how you need to connect with them at the moment. 

 7 Walk Away Points

  1. Think about how you utilize your time to give enough touches (points of relational contact) with the people on your team. 
  2. It is essential to keep a balance between structure and attunement. For every coach (structure), there need to be five points of attunement. In struggling relationships, that ratio goes up to 15 to one. 
  3. It is important to recognize mis-attunement and move to repair. 
  4. Make people feel heard. 
  5. Make sure people know their identity as a person is not solely wrapped up in their performance. If they feel you value their performance above their humanity, you won't get the most from them. 
  6. See those you lead as valuable assets and treat them as such. 
  7. The willingness and ability of a leader to repair the connection with their followers are correlated with how the leader views themself, others, and the organization.
