consistent messages during good and bad times. And, knowing how and when
to be a good listener. Communicating is critical. Employees must hear from

a servant leader. Put your employees and your company first. A top
manager who makes decisions that are self-serving will lack followers and

adapting to competitive and industry situations. It also means being
willing to change your decisions if new information or circumstances
warrant the change.

time, and discouraged.

leaders are motivating. These leaders motivate employees to deliver their
best for their leaders and for their company.
