Pardon section one part two section one and it starts off with this section right here becoming a leader how to succeed is a new leader. Once you've been selected as a leader. It is time to lead. What is the best way to do this? Like many things starting off on the right foot is simple but not easy. Here are some fundamental rules to keep in mind as you take command one be humble. It is an honor to be in a leadership position. Your team is counting on you to make the right decisions to don't act like you know everything you don't. The team knows that ask smart questions. Three listen ask for advice and heat it. Four treat people with respect regardless of rank. Everyone is a human being and plays an important role in the team. Treat them that way.

Nine be balanced extreme actions actions and opinions are usually not good ten be decisive when it is time to make a decision make one eleven Build relationships that is your main goal is a leader. A team is a group of people who have relationships and trust one another otherwise it is just a disconnected incoherent cluster of people twelve lastly. Get the job done.
