what leaders do

-Leaders relentlessly upgrade their team, using every encounter as an opportunity to evaluate, coach, and build self-confidence. -Leaders make sure people not only see the vision, they live and breathe it. -Leaders get into everyone's skin, exuding positive energy and optimism. -Leaders establish trust with candor, transparency, and credit. -Leaders have the courage to make unpopular decisions and gut calls. -Leaders probe and push with a curiosity that borders on skepticism, making sure their questions are answered with action. -Leaders inspire risk taking and learning by setting the example. -Leaders celebrate. - Adopted from "Winning" by Jack and Suzy Welch (HarperCollins)
