Despite the costs in money, time, stress and effort, too many firms still rely on 'stick and carrot' (put in that order intentionally) motivational methods rather than sound leadership. Interactions between leaders and their teams are usually formal and brief.

Many leaders and firms believe they are somehow immune from this; that things are different with them and their firm and, after all, it's 'just business'.
