How to ruthlessly improve:

Leaders are constantly finding new ways to educate their customers, employees, and partners. They are always looking at their processes, policies, and systems, and asking themselves: “How could we make this more efficient? What don’t we need anymore? What do we need now?” (Zhivago, 2010)


How to invest in your business:

Even in a terrible economy, a good leader will invest in the business. He will just choose his investments wisely (Zhivago, 2010).


How to be an aggressive “evolutionizer”:

The effective leader becomes a valued and trusted business partner for his customers, opening the door for him to introduce new products and services to them (Zhivago, 2010)
