In today's world of working from home, a recession, and health concerns from a global pandemic, leaders need to do more than manage team members, they need to make sure that their team's core needs are being met. Gone are the days of only being concerned with personal growth and career achievements. Employees are now looking to meet more basic needs around safety, belongingness, and esteem.
