    What he says and does has an immediate clout upon his colleagues in the company. He treats his employees as the members of his family, thinking what they think, and doing what they do. Only can a good leader bring out good employees. An ordinary word that he delivers is the answer that all of us have been looking for -- By together promoting team-spirit, our company shall boom as a matter of course.

    Nice Tdol.

    Only a puzzle remians: Regarding "Only a good leader can bring the best out of their employees" , I wonder why "their" should not be "his/her"?

    I think that "their" is used because although it is plural, it can indicate neutral gender.

    I agree with Sas- you can say 'his ir her', but many prefer 'their' because it is simpler to use when we don't know the gender.
