Love People Or Forget Leadership

I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated. ~ Al McGuire ~ 

As a leader, it is necessary to be competent at your profession and you should understand your chosen industry.  More important, however, is your knowledge of people.   As you become a leader the most important skills are your inter-personal ones.   No matter your profession, the minute you become a supervisor, people become your number one focus - not your craft.  If you are uncomfortable with people then you will never be a good leader.  Spend your time honing your people skills and less time improving your craft.  You must love people in order to succeed - since supervising others is your number one function as a leader.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

I love working with people.
