  1. Communicate your vision to everyone through brief, heartfelt stories using powerful language and sensory images. Enlist their commitment to achieving this vision.
  2. Be prepared for changes in your team, among your followers, and in political and economic conditions. Train everyone to expect and accept frequent change.
  3. Be patient, persistent, and resilient. Avoid surrendering after each minor setback. Don’t settle for immediate gratification. Remember you are running a marathon, not a sprint.
  4. Be inclusive. Make sure that all your associates, stakeholders, and followers have easy access to you. Listen to everyone with the same level of respect.
  5. Be brave. Face unpleasant realities without flinching. Don’t be afraid to conduct difficult conversations and to confront irresponsible employees.
  6. Be a follower. Grow other leaders in your team. Listen to the inputs of your associates and implement them. Empower others to lead you in areas of their strength.
  7. If you have high authority, focus on getting results. If you have low authority, focus on establishing relationships.
