Whether you call yourself a boss, a leader or something else, your job is to influence the people around you and create a cohesive, collaborative unit. How do you do that? Entrepreneur Network partner Patrick Bet-David explains that it starts by learning about your employees' stories. What do they care about? What is important to them? What to they like?

By showing an interest in your people up front, you'll earn their trust and they'll be more willing to try something new or work harder for you. This last part speaks to Bet-David's second tip, which is that you should realize how important timing is. As a leader, you need to know when it's time to get to know someone new or bring someone into your office for a serious chat.
