She also talks about an area that she is a subject matter expert on, and that is Discretionary Effort Leadership which is based on the fact that when people walk into work (or start work if they work remotely) they make a conscious decision, “How hard am I going to work today?” And they decide how much energy they will give and intellectual prowess they will invest in your company.
