LEADERS…get things done through influencing others.  Leadership guru John Maxwell professes thatleadership is influence”.

—LEADERS…establish specific expectations so that direct reports are crystal clear on what their contributions to strategic operations of the business should be.

—LEADERS…provide constructive feedback.  Their direction is positive, stimulating, encouraging and reinforcing, versus any destructive form of “reinforcement” that brings people down.

—LEADERS…measure performance & hold their team accountable.  What get’s measured get’s done.

—LEADERS…cast a big shadow.  The influence of the leader on their team is evident as a truly great leader is admired and respected as having an influential impact on the lives of those who he or she leads.
