Be a Leader - Grow a Pair!

Leadership is getting people to do not what they want to do, but what they need to do.

Servant leadership is not kissing peoples' ass, it is leading people so they don't get their asses kick.

12 Leadership actions you need to put in place now before mediocrity infects your business team.
(Do Not accept mediocrity when excellence is an option.)

1. Create an environment where excellence is expected, enjoyed, and honored.

2. Hold people responsible and accountable for their actions.

3. Reward what you want repeated. Excellent behavior needs to modeled.

4. Always provide constructive feedback(criticism) individually, one - to -one.

4. Deal with irresponsibility quickly and fairly. Too much help doesn't help.

5. Ask open ended questions: Who does what by when?  What's next? What else?

6. Clarify and confirm. (don't ASS-U-ME).

7. KISS - Keep It Simple and Sincere

8. "How can I help?"  does not mean do it for them.

9. Empower, not Umpire.

10. Train to Retain.

11. Listen more, talk less.

12. Start accepting "I'm sorry" only as a polite gesture, NOT as an excuse.
