9 Key Elements for Today’s Leader

April 25, 2013

Leadership is one of the toughest skills on the planet. Here in the Northwest, it is not much different. Even on the days when the business and its products and services seem to gel together. Managers charged with the prospect of success face the daily challenge of improving all aspects of the organization. We manage a wide variety of attitudes and behaviors as much as we manage the employees on a given day.

The Carnegie Leadership Principles are truly the principal success ingredients for today’s management and leadership. And all the books and courses are worth careful consideration. Improving every member in the organization is critical. Growth and opportunity are central to achievement.

Following the nine leadership elements within Dale Carnegie can truly change everything for the better in the work environment:

  • Begin with praise and honest appreciation
  • Call attention to people’s mistakes indirectly
  • Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person
  • Ask questions instead of giving direct orders
  • Let the other person save face
  • Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement
  • Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to
  • Use encouragement. Make the fault seem easy to correct
  • Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest

These are just a small portion of the Dale Carnegie Human Relations Principles. It is through these principles that organizations grow. And it is through example and commitment that leadership and management move the business in the right direction. Carnegie Leadership Training offers everyone the tools and the processes that facilitate the skills that improve everyone’s personal and professional success.

Leaders find solid relationships with the people they manage and in turn an environment of commitment and excellence is continually pollinated. Leadership Training is the way to know and grow with your people. Call us today and let us be a partner in your success.
