What Do Others Say?
There are a few things that should be learned in every leaders career. First we must recognize that people need and want to respected for what they do in the work place. Second they need and want to be honored for their individual and team contributions. Third never pick a team of "yes people".
Great leaders surround themselves with others who provide expert advice and input even when they go against the leaders inclinations or thoughts. Weak leaders can not tolerate innovative thinkers who challenge the status quo or who may disagree with a decision. There is one thing that rings true however, that once all input is given, options weighed and a decision is made everyone must grab an oar and row in that direction.
There is no room for those who try and cause dissension or disrupt progress once a direction has been set. A good leader will monitor how things are progressing and if changes need to be made then they will gather their team, take advice, and modify or create a new course of action.
One last piece of advice if I may, remember leaders do have certain natural personality traits that help them inspire others to action, however, great leaders also study and practice the science of leadership.
