The most successful business leaders are those who develop strong trusted relationships with their employees. Employee feedback is at the cornerstone of these relationships, as it provides management with visibility inside the collective worlds of their employees so that they can celebrate employee triumphs, align people around goals, and offer support when needed. When managers create this feedback loop where employees feel heard and inspired to always give their best, they create the energizing, healthy work environments that have been found to dramatically. – David Hassell CEO, 15Five
