10 Things Effective Leaders Do
Underpromise and Overdeliver. Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Be honest and realistic with what you can deliver. It’ll be a pleasant surprise when you blow someone out of the water.
Show appreciation. Say thank you. These two little words go a long way and make a huge difference.
Take ownership. Whether it be a success or a failure, own it. Taking responsibility earns respect.
Communicate. Keep communication lines open and honest. Take the time to listen and hear what is being said.
Be flexible. Things wont always go your way. Be prepared to make changes and keep an open mind, you might be surprised!
Delegate. If you can delegate tasks to others, do it! Empower those around you by allowing them to do things on their own.
Create a routine. Stick to a morning routine. This will get you going on days that you are feeling less than motivated.
Continue to Learn. Learning is continual. Be open to what you learn and where you learn it from.
Balance. Make time to get enough sleep, exercise, and enjoy yourself. Take care of yourself so you can take care of business.
Stay Humble. Remember where you started and what it took to get you where you are. No one likes a bragger.
