Paul realized the importance of others and wasn’t afraid to give them the attention and credit due them. Paul also had a love for those under him.
A research organization polled five hundred executives, asking them what traits they thought were most important in dealing with others. From the information received, five basic “rules” were formulated. They are:
- Always give your people the credit that is rightfully theirs. To do otherwise is both morally and ethically dishonest.
- Be courteous. Have genuine consideration for other people’s feelings, wishes, and situations.
- Never tamper with the truth. Never rationalize. What you might like to believe is not necessarily the truth.
- Be concise in your writing and talking, especially when giving instructions to others.
- Be generous. Remember that it is the productivity of others that makes possible your executive position.
- Not bad advice for all of us, but especially for leaders.
What to do:
✞ Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
