Managerial characteristics to live by

A great list of things to live by if you are a manager.

  • Coach privately and constructively;
  • Praise publicly and generously;
  • Always maintains a positive attitude – never lose your cool;
  • Actively foster a creative and fun work environment;
  • Listen sincerely, speak thoughtfully;
  • Hire great people and focus on developing them;
  • Care about every employee’s career;
  • Be quick to take blame if something goes wrong, but credit others when things go well;
  • Never gossip or complain about a manager or co-worker; and,
  • Try to treat every employee with respect.

And I would add one more, don't be an ass.
