Gone are the days of the “top-down autocratic” leader. In 2016, people expect to be included in decisions in the workplace. This also holds true for volunteer, non-profit and church organizations.
While doing some research on leadership today, I was inspired by this gem for today’s leaders. Thought I would share …
The modern day CEO develops from a different set of rules:
o When the rule says be out front, allow others to ride the horse.
o When the rule says be the hero, let the others carry the flag.
o When the rule says retain power, make sure power is shared.
o When the rules say know it all, make sure others learn more.
o When the rule says tell people what they do, teach people how to do it.
o When the rule says put the portrait on the wall, put others up first.
o When the rule says have all the answers, look for the answers from others.
o When the rule says take all the credit, give all the credit away.”
