  4. 4. “Ten Rules for Working and Living<br />
  5. 5. The Lives We Live are the Lives We Create<br />Expectations are often self-fulfilling<br />Take control of your life or it will control you<br />“A leader can shape his followers best by showing<br />them the way forward rather than telling them about it.”<br />
  6. 6. Health and Productivity go Hand in Hand<br />It does not matter what you do as long as it is not destructive to others and you are making a contribution<br />All work has inherent dignity<br />People can grow and make contributions to others<br />
  7. 7. As We Treat Others, So Shall We Be Treated<br />People notice how we treat them, especially when in a leadership position<br />People can learn how to treat others by watching how people in leadership positions treat people<br />“Make your words sweet: you may have to eat them later!”<br />
  8. 8. Don’t Wait for Solutions: Create Them<br />The active and passive:<br />The passive (negative) position waits for someone else to make a bad situation better<br />The active (positive) position works to make an awareness so that all involved can work together to make it better<br />“To paraphrase Gandhi if you want to make a change be the<br /> best example of that change and others will follow. ”<br />
  9. 9. Negativity Kills<br />Negativity is contagious<br />People are drawn to leaders through their attitude and ability to overcome negativity<br />“If negativity is a cancer, then good  leaders, just in the way they carry themselves and approach the world, fight that cancer, all the time.”<br />
  10. 10. Communication Starts With Listening<br />You don’t have to be talkative to be a leader<br />Listen (don’t try to plan response)<br />By setting a tone of listening, other will follow<br />
  11. 11. Between Two Positions Always Lies a Third Option<br />At least one way to view an issue<br />Expanding the issue<br />Finding a third alternative<br />Creating a negotiated compromise<br />Effective leaders have the ability to generate those options<br />
  12. 12. Laughter Cures<br />You gotta laugh!<br />Laughter is even more infectious than negativity<br />Laughter can draw people to you<br />“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”<br />
  13. 13. Do Great Work, Have Fun and Lend a Hand Along the Way<br />Great work is rewarding<br />Be a master of your craft and enjoy what you do<br />Help others along the way (setting an example for others)<br />
  14. 14. In the End, We Are All More or Less Human<br />People are not perfect<br />People make mistakes, that makes us human<br />The pursuit of near perfection is more important than achieving it<br />
