Dan Rockwell wrote an amazing post last November.  I love how he has made such a clear and simple guide to being a leader.  Thank you Dan!  You have shown me that I have lots of work to do to aspire to meet these principles.

Let people know they matter: (http://leadershipfreak.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/i-nearly-died/)

  1. Speak hard truths kindly.
  2. Expect more of them than they expect of themselves.
  3. Release don’t dominate.
  4. Channel don’t stifle.
  5. Develop their strengths.
  6. Minimize and compensate for their weaknesses.
  7. Follow success with new opportunities.
  8. Show compassion.
  9. Remember progress rather than failure while pushing forward.
  10. Believe in them.
