If people within your team TRUST YOU, they will follow you and they will WILLINGLY do what you need them to do.
LEADERSHIP SKILL #2 – CONFIDENT DECISION-MAKING

LEADERSHIP SKILL #3 – IDENTIFY TALENT & NURTURE IT!
The truth is, you will NEVER HOLD TALENT DOWN, so if you fail to identify someone in your team who has potential, they will leave and go elsewhere!
LEADERSHIP SKILL #4 – TAKE RESPONSIBILITY – BLAME NOBODY!
As leaders, we have to SET THE STANDARD for others to follow.
TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for everything that happens within your team will guarantee you move forward, improve, and continually SUCCEED.
LEADERSHIP SKILL #5 – LISTEN AND OBSERVE
Great leaders LISTEN MORE than they speak. REMEMBER: When you are NOT speaking, you are more open to learning.
LEADERSHIP SKILL #6 – DELEGATE & EMPOWER
You will achieve your goals faster if you DELEGATE TASKS responsibly to others and empower them to achieve great things!
