It can be all too easy for leaders to get tunnel vision with their companies. With constant pressure and growing demands, the focus becomes fixed on the numbers while leaving room for little else. A lot can get lost in this in-between, from mental health to employee satisfaction to the long-term performance of the business. It’s not a sustainable model, and it often leads to stagnation in many organizations.
