The great football coach, Vince Lombardi (1913 - 1970) once said, "It is essential to understand that battles are primarily won in the hearts of men. Men respond to leadership in a most remarkable way and once you have won his heart, he will follow you anywhere." I think this applies to women, too.

So how do you do this?

- Look at situations objectively;

- Appreciate the backgrounds each of your team members bring to the table;

- Remain honest in all your dealings;

- Be humble (leave your ego at the door);

- Be patient;

- Be grateful for the contributions each team member makes;

- Treat everyone with trust and respect. 

If you do these things, your people, men and women alike, will feel it in their hearts. This is the essence of Heartfelt Leadership.
