Maximum Impact - Sanders

Here are my notes from Tim Sanders, a senior level executive at Yahoo!

Tim Sanders - Author of "Love is the Killer App"

Tim's whole basis for leadership grows from building emotional relationships with others. Develop a positive mood state.
Positive people people have more DHEA and this results in better performance.

Leaders need to "Lead the mood state" by:
1) Give your people a cause. Give them purpose.
2) Give your people a life.
a) Environment - Give them a good place to work. Natural light, comfortable furniture, pictures/paintings, etc.
b) Life balance - for example, no work on Sundays.
c) Make a friend, be a friend.
