The Six Most Important Leadership Principles (Podcast)

In this podcast, I state what I believe are the six most critical leadership traits that anyone in a position of authority needs to master.  They can be applied to nearly any circumstance or situation.

 

 

To sum up, my six key principles are:

1. Know your job in and out.

2. Lead from the front:  put your ass on the line.

3. Do all you ask others to do.

4. Behave appropriately:  you are not there to be their buddy, you are there to lead them.

5. Share your knowledge.

6. Know when to draw the sword:  sometimes you have to be an enforcer.
