In his latest book, Bill Baker says the best way to motivate employees is by “leading with kindness.” By that this former New York TV executive doesn’t mean being soft or avoiding hard decisions. He does mean creating an environment where workers can talk to the boss candidly even if the message is something the boss doesn’t want to hear. But how does “kindness” come into play in an environment filled with the fear of layoffs and pressure to produce more with less?
The workplace and kindness in hard times with host Regina Brett, Friday at 9 on 90.3.

Read an excerpt from Leading with Kindness: How Good People Consistently Get Superior Results.
