Eight Rules of Great Leadership

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

1. Manage processes not people. Set up systems, methods, guidelines and routines that
everyone understands.

2. Make sure your team understands your company’s goals and objectives and what is in
it for them

3. Be positive, optimistic and energetic. A great attitude is contagious.

4. Be transparent and honest. Your team needs to know how you will react, before you

5. Have the courage to make unpopular decisions and gut calls. “Conflict is the conduit
to resolution.”

6. Ask many probing questions, bordering on skepticism. Constantly look for a better,
faster, easier way.

7. Promote risk taking and learning by setting an example. Encourage people to generate
new ideas and reward them accordingly.

8. Great leaders celebrate and reward success. Share the wealth and the credit.
