Quote of the Show:

“Your employees tell me they feel like they care about the business more than you do.” – Molly McGrath



    • Empowering Belief: Employees can and do care about your business as much as you do, which is a foundational truth for sustainable business growth.
    • Cultural Shift: To build trust and let go of micromanagement, it’s essential to shift the workplace culture to one that recognizes and appreciates employees’ commitment.

    • Active Engagement: Molly urges leaders to engage in open dialogue with team members to better understand their role and contributions to the firm’s success.

    • Mindset Matters: The belief that employees don’t care may be rooted in leaders’ lack of trust or fear of letting go, which needs to be addressed for the firm to progress.

    • Transforming Mindsets: By changing the narrative around employee investment, leaders can foster an environment where every team member is motivated to contribute actively to the firm’s goals.
