"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."

5. Results-Oriented Instead of Goal-Oriented

Do you think you can speak of leadership if the leader has no vision, no plan?

Followers need a clear and well-defined structure. How leaders manage always depends on their leadership style and their personality. A leader with a strong personality will leave a definitive imprint on the followers. Yet even strong leaders who know what they want need to make the followers feel that they are needed. One way to do this is to involve them in the management process. Make sure they know how their leader manages. Tell them the goals instead of asking for short-term results without any explanation.

Remember: Goals are long-term.
