Helpful thoughts and techniques for any Executive, Manager, or for life in general

 

•  It pays to believe in Murphy’s Law

•  Always have a Plan A, B and C

•  You don’t want to be right all the time, you just have to be right

    when it’s important

•  You must make mistakes - just try not to make a fatal one,

    and even then … make  sure you learn from the mistake

•  Hire smarter people to work for you and let them make you

    look great

•  You don’t have to win every battle, losing some may actually

    be the smart move

•  It’s OK to be angry, just don’t take your anger out on those who

    work for you

•  You have the final say but don’t rub it in

•  Don’t “judge a book by its cover” - ever - remember the saying

    about “all that glitters...”

•  Be optimistic - you’re the leader and can see farther than

    your employees

•  Know you can solve every problem you will face with your

    team - deal with those negative thoughts

•  It doesn’t hurt to have a  mentor or executive consultant

    in your back pocket

•  Laugh whenever you can - it throws off the negative around

    you, feels good and helps the team

•  Get to know the meanest SOB in the company - it can have

    surprising benefits

•  Use “I” statements with superiors and peers

•  It’s lonely at the top - find someone out of the company

    to talk to and always talk to yourself - you are often the

    best to play “devil’s advocate”

•  Trust your instincts (e.g., “gut feelings”) - they are almost

    always right

•  You, and only you, know what the finish line looks like -

    it helps to tell your employees what it looks like but you

    have to "bring" them there

•  When all about you are losing theirs, walk your own way

    and light the way for the folks who work for you 

•  Give it all you’ve got, you may not pass this way again
