Leadership is a mix of motivating, empowering, being present, and caring about everyone in an organization. Des Hague makes a point of being present to all of his business locations as often as he can. His feeling is that you can pretend to care but you can not pretend being there. Being present for a workforce is important to show care for the emotional state of a company, not just the financial state. Des has often heard that he was the most seen CEO in many remote offices and that his weekly company wide communications were most appreciated and well viewed.
