What emotional stake do you have in your business?

I’m happy to see that there is an HBR discussion going on about how hating (or loving) HR is not really the point.

Bill Taylor points out that

The real problem is that too many organizations aren’t as demanding, as rigorous, as creative about the human element in business as they are about finance, marketing, and R&D.

and that as leaders we need to

create an environment in which everyone in the organization can share ideas, solve problems, and develop a psychological and emotional stake in the enterprise.

My question to you is what do you do, for yourself and for your team, to create that connection between the business goals of your company and the abilities you represent?

If you don’t have a good answer to this question, I suggest you take some time to work that out.
