Be a Leader

Some tips to being a good Leader/Boss

Think two generations down the road, not one.
Instill a passion to develop other leaders in all leaders. Self-interest and self-importance prevent leaders from developing leaders.

Don’t waste time with people who don’t care.
When you see an ember in others, fan it. People need encouragement more than criticism.
Help others assess their own learning. “How are you becoming a leader who develops leaders?”
Stop making systems that depend on you.
Navigate tensions between protecting what you have and building the future. Protection closes up.
Building opens up. Success requires both.
Don’t be so damn helpful. Let others struggle and succeed.
Embrace imperfection. Others won’t do things the “right” way.
Practice coaching. Give less advice.
