50 Rules for Being a Great Leader:

Becoming a great leader isn’t something that happens overnight, but it can be achieved through discipline, hard work and a commitment to improvement through experience. Great leaders aren’t born, as some people suggest; instead, they are shaped over time. And, while what makes a “great” leader in one application doesn’t always apply to others, there are some general rules that all great leaders follow. If becoming a great leader in your own business or organization is your goal, these 50 rules are a good place to start:

  1. Listen to your team. Rule one. Always listen to what your team has to say, even if you don’t like it.
  2. Communicate as efficiently as possible. Make your expectations and feelings clear, in the appropriate medium as often as possible.
  3. Talk less. Sometimes saying nothing is better than saying just anything.
  4. Be an example. Be the type of person you want your team members to be.
  5. Be passionate. If you aren’t passionate about your business, you’re in the wrong business.
  6. Be consistent. Be consistent in your behaviors so your team knows what to expect from you.
  7. Make firm decisions. Don’t leave things undecided for long, and don’t waver about a decision once you’ve made it.
  8. Identify mentors and role models. Find people you can look up to and learn from, and follow them closely.
  9. Interfere only when necessary. If you trust your team to do good work, don’t interfere unless absolutely necessary.
  10. Know your limits. Don’t extend yourself beyond your means.
