It is essential to keep balance in all three of these areas, as any shift will lead to a change in the team's trust. If, as a leader, you are not authentic, your team will see that and could question your intention. If you are not balancing logic, your team members might think your plan is missing substance or that the communication of the plan is ineffective. Your team might see this and question following your lead because they do not trust your judgement. Finally, if you are not leading with empathy, your team members might not feel understood or seen, which could erode trust and diminish results.
TIP: If you are worried about your team's productivity, take some time to evaluate your team trust.
