Bossyish

The best leaders I know are bossy.  They do, however, manage to direct others toward action in ways that are usually not too offensive.

Here's a few of the ways those quality leaders boss us, without appearing to be too bossy in the process:

  • They communicate clearly the WHY behind what we're being asked (or told) to do.
  • They craft their messages predominantly in "pull" instead of "push" format.
  • They assign us to tasks for which we are well-suited.
  • They relentlessly express appreciation for work we've accomplished.
Doesn't seem that hard, does it?
