Seeing an individual as human, as a person, is one of the most difficult things for leaders to do. We interact with humans everywhere we go, but they come and go without us seeing their humanity. This happens in our organizations as well. One of the most important gifts we can give others is the gift of our time. The word gift is used purposely. A gift is something we give with no expectation of a return. We simply give it because we value them as a human being. Time is one of the most valuable resources of a leader.
