During this last evaluation we have covered the topic related to employees and employers and therefore have seen that mangers and leaders are key to perform and have a successful business profit where it is finance or ethical rewards.

Some of the latest articles and websites reveal that leaders relay a lot on different ways of knowing in order to show other employees how to perform and act seriously and effectively in every single moment.

They also relay on language as depending on it, they might be ordering different things and dividing the employees into different levels of hierarchy.

As another way, the also tend to have faith within their employees because a lot of times they have to leave them do thing alone and take the risk in order to developed new ideas and find new resources.

Sometimes when you ask a leader about all of this ways, they might note even think about them when they work but they are always presents and everyone has a tendency to either use one more than another. This is simply because our rational tends to work better fro example with intuition where as for another person, the memory might be a better option and therefore developed new ideas these way.
