High-class leadership means doing
both the big and little things necessary
for your employees to flourish.
Here’s where to start.
Extraordinary bosses seek out a variety of viewpoints
and opinions. They hire and promote in a way that avoids
uniformity of thought.
ENCOURAGE DIVERSITY OF VIEWPOINT
Extraordinary bosses know that most products
and services have a relatively short lifetime.
They are willing to innovate – even if it means
tweaking an existing cash cow.
don’t rely on just one cash cow
Extraordinary bosses speak honestly, express
gratitude, admit vulnerabilities and ask for
employees’ help and understanding.
SPEAK FROM THE HEART
Extraordinary bosses build a culture of
honesty, transparency and authenticity.
CREATE A CLIMATE OF TRUST
Extraordinary bosses promote social
interaction – both between different
groups in the company and between
managers and employees.
Extraordinary bosses help employees become more
focused and productive by seeking ways to help
them become better connected to their families.
BECOME MORE FAMILY FRIENDLY
Extraordinary bosses encourage group activities – like
bake sales and benefit concerts – that create social
interaction. This helps to build a stronger sense of
community both inside and outside the company.
SUPPORT AND FUND
Extraordinary bosses avoid bureaucracy,
and create organizations that are more
flat, adaptable and efficient.
