"Frank's skill in asking the right questions is un-mistakable, and is at the core of his leadership philosophy.

The power of these questions cannot be underestimated, especially if you want to lead and not manage."

Enhance Your Leadership Skills

30. Lead by example

A leader not only creates leaders—she also makes sure it’s easy to follow her.

Are you talking the talk and walking the walk?

Remember: Leaders gain followers because they are examples.

29. Have a Vision and a Plan

Many fail to become leaders because they either have no vision or they fail in creating a vision others can understand.

What is your vision?

Every vision needs a plan. When there’s no plan, deadlines are missed, budgets are overextended, people are unhappy, angry and exhausted, and someone will have to clean up the mess.

Do you follow your plan religiously—with the necessary adjustments?

Remember: With vision and a plan success is only a step away.

28. Dictatorship Is Never Leadership

Bossing people around, pressing your opinions, thoughts and ideas onto others is not leadership. Everyone can do that.

Wouldn’t you agree?

Remember: Leaders stay invisible and have their followers think it was all their doing.

27. Be Aware of Others—Show That You Care

Cultural differences matter—know and respect them. Great leaders show their care by serving their followers.

Do you show respect?

Do you care?

Remember: The most beloved leaders know that people want to be respected and shown respect.

26. Take Care of Yourself

Appearance does matter. Most importantly—it has to match your role.

Do you know the appropriate dress code?

Remember: People judge and are judged by appearance.
