“What if we modify the culture to recognize people fairly, based on their work, effort, passion and results, as individuals and teams?”

For the Smart Blog on Leadership, Deb Mills-Scofield offers an insightful perspective (and grammar lesson) on the difference between being “just a” leader and being “a just” leader”: treatment that is fair versus equal and a focus on “I” versus “you.”

Her piece resonated with my own interest in social intelligence and Skillful Means at work (and the wordplay in her introduction was a real attention grabber).
