the
10
commandments of
leadership
from ron greenbaum

1. HIRE THE RIGHT PEOPLE
Leaders hire “the best of the best” and train them up. You want to find people who are truthful, nice, and passionate about what they do every day.

2. REMOVE NEGATIVITY FROM THE WORKPLACE
As a leader, never send negative information down to your team. Handle a negative situation in the privacy of an office on an individual basis. This helps to avoid a negative culture among your team and will keep their energy positive. Leaders discuss ideas, not people. Create a no-drama zone in the office and communicate this rule to everyone.

3. ALWAYS TAKE A BREATH BEFORE REACTING
A moment of silence can do wonders when it comes to controlling your emotions. Slow down, step back, and then discuss. Just a single moment can mean the difference between having an emotional outburst you will later regret and properly handling a situation.

4. MAKE YOUR VISION A SHARED VISION
All members of the team must see themselves associated with your vision and have a plan to bring this vision to reality.

5. ENTHUSIASM IS CONTAGIOUS
When leaders are positive, excited and enthusiastic about their vision, that energy will trickle down to the members of their team.

6. HAVE A MASTERMIND GROUP TO GET DIFFERENT THOUGHT
A mastermind group is made up of diverse individuals with different viewpoints and backgrounds. Running a situation by other successful people who are not in your industry can help leaders see things from a different perspective. You may just be too close to see the positives or negatives in the situation.

7. DON’T BE AFRAID TO TAKE RISKS
A leader will train his or her team to take risks and also accept responsibility for those risks.

8. BE A GOOD STUDENT AS WELL AS A GOOD TEACHER
This can be accomplished by reading a lot of books and listening to audio. We are bombarded with negatives constantly. Reading positive books and listening to positive audio will help to combat this and allow you to share the information you learn more effectively with others.

9. PAY FOR PERFORMANCE
Give credit where credit is due. You want to make a profit, but not at the expense of employees who helped you get there. As targets and goals are met, understand that rewards should be received.

10. RECOGNIZE GOOD WORK AND PAISE YOUR TEAM OFTEN
Deserved recognition and praise are the invisible current that electrifies and empowers the organization.
