I read Quora questions/answers regularly and I bookmark a lot of them.

So in the spirit of redistributing and having an easier access to my favorite stories over there, I decided to publish them on a daily basis here.

The following question and answer were the best I glanced over for the day.

What is an example of a leadership mindset?

The following answer is by Stan Garfield to this particular question.

  1. Serve your people.
  2. Practice and reward caring, sharing, and daring – caring for others, sharing what you know, and daring to try new ideas.
  3. Insist on trust, truth, and transparency in all dealings – earn and respect the trust of others, communicate truthfully and openly, and demonstrate and expect accountability.
  4. Look for opportunities to help, thank, and praise others.
  5. Eliminate criticism, blame, and ridicule in all interactions with others.
  6. Do what is right – logically, financially, morally, ethically, and environmentally – with decency, integrity, and fairness.
  7. Do it the right way – honestly, accurately, correctly, and completely – with good effort, resulting in high quality, and meeting all commitments.
  8. Do it right away – don’t procrastinate, make excuses, or avoid what is unpleasant – the sooner you start, the better.
