Care: Care enough to praise and to hold people to standards – to correct them
When your actions speak for themselves, everybody listens
Build and create an atmosphere in which people enjoy coming to work together
Define a plan: Give them a plan you believe in that includes your vision and value system
Bring energy to the workplace: Hard work is a solution to your problem
Be sincere: It takes a long time to establish credibility. If you are not sincere you’ll never have credibility
Your coaching will not be determined by how many games you win, but by how you handle the losses.
If you really want to motivate someone:
Delegation is not a sign of laziness, it is a sign of confidence in your people
Define, Delegate, and Lead
If you have integrity nothing else matters, if you don’t have integrity nothing else matters.
Not everyone really wants to hear the truth when they ask for it. Sometimes the truth hurts but if you do tell the truth you are showing a deep level of integrity.
