It is certainly thought that a manager develops an attachment to the people they lead. Emotional intelligence is important in that there needs to be the ability to regulate emotions during social exchanges.

Identify solutions to combat employee burnout and turnover rates.

There are many ways to combat employee burnout and turnover, I would say the first thing is to listen to your employees. If there is a problem circulating that has not been addressed, make it a priority. Celebrate your employees, make them feel important and let them know often how much you appreciate their hard work. Give ample opportunities for paid time off. We all need time to rest and recharge to come back to work feeling refreshed and renewed. Have options for mental and physical health such as a relaxation app free to download or a gym or reduced or free rates to a local gym for employees. The more you put into creating happy employees, the more you will get back.
