(the path to sucess) STAFFING
One cannot lead without followers Flexibility Successful Business Planning Fairness 1. Avoid playing favorites. Nothing can undermine the perception of a leader's fairness than by concentrating attention on a small, select group. The leader's attention should be distributed across a wider range of people where everyone is seen as playing by the same rules. Sense of Humor -Humor means having the confidence to laugh at yourself and remember that when you laugh at yourself, you don't risk offending others. 2. Give credit liberally. Spreading the credit for accomplishments to those who might otherwise go unrecognized is fariness in its truest (and perhaps most neglected) sense. 3. A good leader needs to make decisions that are fair and objective, apart from the way the leader may feel personally about the situation. Fairness deals in facts and not personal opinions.
