The Inc. magazine article I posted a link to Tuesday on Facebook – Geoffrey James’ “8 Core Beliefs of Extraordinary Bosses” – found its way to my inbox today via email from DailyGood.org. Its arrival prompted a search in the Brain Food blog archives for my 2010 post on the basic principles of leadership. Some ideas are just worth repeating.
The Basic Principles
- Focus on the situation, issue, or behavior, not on the person.
- Maintain the self-confidence and self-esteem of others.
- Maintain constructive relationships with your employees, peers, and managers.
- Take initiative to make things better.
- Lead by example.
