If you do not educate your employees because you are scared that they may leave you, you will end up with mediocre employees and a dying business.

Classical authority seeks to create dependence, often because it is too scared to actually let its employees thrive and possibly threaten its supremacy. Leadership is about creating independent employees who can act with autonomy, mastery, purpose and a sense of ownership of the organisation.

If a business is as good as the people who conduct it, then investing in the education and training of the team is actually an investment in the quality of the products and services that the business offers its clients, who keep the business alive.
