Sheryll Sandberg possesses unique leadership qualities that every boss can learn from . When people at work started opening up about what they were actually going through, Sandberg realised that it was such a huge part pf leadership. As a leader, if you’re a little bit more open, a little bit more transparent about what’s going on in your life, people feel like they have more of a personal bond with you. It makes work less transactional. It makes the workplace more of a community and you learn more.
