Staff leave because they don't feel seen, heard, or appreciated.  Who knew the answer to this lies in a show called Ted Lasso?  Ted's leadership style is vital for companies because it demonstrates the effectiveness of a more holistic and inclusive approach to being a leader. It combines empathy, intuition, and collaboration, which creates a compassionate work culture.
