Simple Rules for More Effective Leadership Posted October 25, 2013 by Simple Rules Foundation

I recently came upon an article by Nicole Fallon, staff writer at BusinessNewsDaily. In this piece, entitled 5 Simple Ways to Become a Better Leader, I recognized and appreciated what a fundamental and straightforward list of Simple Rules this was. Written for leaders and managers, this short list can help anyone enhance their own effectiveness in myriad situations.

Great examples of simple rules are clear, adaptable, scalable and user-friendly. So what do you think of these?

  • Connect and communicate with others. How do you want to relate to others and be in the world? Relationships based upon trust, honesty and understanding create a foundation for critical connections and success.
  • Focus on the positive. There is always room for improvement, however, you can make the move from “critic to cheerleader” to create energy, enthusiasm and engagement in others.
  • Show, don’t tell. Be the example of what is possible by doing it.
  • Understand and articulate your motivation. Motives are often tied to values and making a difference in the world. Once you are clear on what is important, share that with those around you.
