Three golden leadership principles

  • Add daily appreciation to your to-do list — include the accomplishments of those who report to you and cross their names off as you praise them
  • Use voicemail — leave messages praising them for a job well done
  • Send weekly “thank you” emails recognising the valuable contributions of your team members
  • Proactively seek their guidance and experience the mutual feeling of importance and value
  • Launch a mentorship programme — this says, “I am genuinely interested in you”, “You are worth my time” and “I have a vested interest in your development and success”
