Five Tenants of Leadership

Five Tenants of Leadership

I learned very early in life that leadership is skill set that one must cultivate within themselves. Always take the high road no mater how difficult.

Many years ago I had a CSM (Command Sergeant Major) give me some very good advice on leadership.

He said all the leadership books and training are great. They are just guides to help you out. But it you want to “Truly want to lead” you must do five things.

Hire good people
Train them
Give them the tools to do their job
Let them do their job
Keep the “the flying monkeys of their back”
And the flying monkeys are anyone above you!

Best advice I have every had…..
