1. Listen. Tune in to what workers and customers are saying, and you’ll find great ideas for how to move forward.

2. Give credit. Workers love leaders who acknowledge their ideas.

3. Be yourself. In our age of sound bites and phony smiles, tell your story honestly. It’s rare and refreshing, and makes workers feel like they know you — and want to help you succeed.

4. Communicate. So much company dysfunction can be prevented with clear communication. Otherwise, workers are in the dark. And soon, they won’t care.

5. Don’t be trendy. Avoid the “strategy du jour” problem. Choose a course and stick to it.

6. Beat anxiety. Stop worrying and turn your negative emotions — regret, fear, sadness — into teachers that help shape your character.

7. Be service-oriented. Leaders can be sort of self-involved, forgetting that they are in a position of leadership. To serve customers, shareholders and workers stay focused on others.
