New Rules of Leadership

My friend Bud Royer (The Pie Man) emailed this article to me today.

I would love to hear some thoughts about these New Rules of Leadership, especially from those in churches and other non-profits.

According to Inc. the New Rules of Leadership are:
  1. Have a Bias Towards Action
  2. Let "No" be a Bigger Part of Your Vocabulary
  3. Keep Communication to a Minimum
  4. Motivate Employees Through Volunteerism
  5. Set Up Your Office as an Idea Factory
  6. Make Customer Service Everyone's Job
  7. Value Creativity Over Productivity
  8. Leave Your Schedule Open
  9. Don't Treat All Employees Equally
  10. Skip Meetings and Forget Face Time
  11. Micromanage (Sometimes)
  12. Let Employees Come and Go as They Please
  13. Work Weekends, and Love It
  14. Make the Important Calls Yourself

  1. interesting...the idea of a servant-leader seems to be inherent throughout the list, but there seems to be little in the way of caring for the soul of the leader or the employees (12 and 13).
