Rules for Leadership:

1.Build the team: Relentlessly upgrade your team, using every encounter as an opportunity to evaluate,  coach and build self-confidence.

2. Promote the vision: Make sure people not only see the vision, they live and breathe it.

3. Display energy & optimism: Get into every one's skin, exuding positive energy and optimism.

4. Establish trust: Show candour, transparency and credit.

5.Be Courageous: Have the courage to take unpopular decisions and gut calls.

6. Probe and push: Curiosity borders on skepticism, making sure that action follows orders.

7. Inspire risk taking: Set personal examples.

8. Celebrate the achievement: It creates an atmosphere of recognition and positive energy.

 "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs though checkered by failure, then to  rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that  knows neither victory nor defeat." - Teddy Roosevelt

Taking responsibility is the underlying factor behind success at work. If someone in your team makes a  mistake, you must be able to admit it, take the necessary action and then proceed. This is something that many do not understand. No leader can be successful without being accountable for his/her own actions.
