AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT: Are you a human-centred leader?

Human-centred leaders put people before profit, doing what is right before results, and focus on creating an environment where people can grow, develop and become their best selves. When you care for people they will care for your business. When you put people first, the results flow through to the bottom line.

DYNAMIC BUSINESS: The human cost of striving for profit

Are the people who work for you no more than a means to make money? While our natural desire is to maximise profit, there is a point where the human cost is too high. Although profit is measured by dollars on the bottom line, the size of that profit can be a measure of how you treat people. Sometimes it is the processes we put in place that damage people.
