Leaders’ Work

I was reading Becoming a Technical Leader: An Organic Problem-Solving Approach by Gerald M. Weinberg where he shares practical advices and lessons he learned for those who wants to lead.

I particularly loved the following lesson:

Lesson Number Ten: If you are a leader, the people are your work. There is no other work worth doing.

Leader, Practice This

If you are a leader these can help you do your work:

  • Ask your people "do you have a dream?".
  • The Carrot Is Mightier Than A Stick.
  • Let your team play, make it a game.
  • Build vulnerability based trust.
  • Emotional intelligence is your friend. Park your emotions.
  • Partner with your people. Do not just direct.
  • Affirm accomplishments of your people – personally and publicly. Brag about your team!

    Thanks for posting that quote. It’s one of my favorites, too.

    Jerry, thank you for your great books!

    Read “Weinberg on writing”, now “Leadership”.
    “Consulting” is on my list next.

    Good stuff.
