Leadership isn’t just about inspiration and charisma. You also need to be a good manager.
– The true secret of leadership is to be respected, not loved.
– Never plan for perfection, always assume that something will go wrong.
– Admit when you’re wrong or you’ve made a mistake.
– Trust the training and education you’ve received.
– Lead by example, especially in matters of ethics and integrity.
– Never burn your bridges. Always keep a way out of a situation, for yourself and others.
– First information is always wrong.
– Don’t overreact.
