Starbucker’s Leadership From A Glass Half Full


Share on LinkedIn

Meet Terry Starbucker: He is one of the nicest guys you ever want to meet in business. Terry recently wrote a short ebook called “Leadership From A Glass Half Full . He talks about how “Command and control is NOT the way to lead, despite what you may think, or what you have seen from the outside.” He discusses 5 principles:

1. Practice Full Spectrum Management: Sometimes you got to be a hard ass, sometimes you have to be a touchy feely softy…the great leader needs to do it all.

2. Teach Don’t Tell: This is the only way employees can learn to do it for themselves (eventually) and for you to get leverage in your business.

3. Trust the Facts: If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. Period.

4. Know the Secrets of Work: To really be successful, it must be done with passion, fun and for a greater cause then ourselves.

5.The 7 Most Important Words in Business: “I don’t know but I will find out”. It’s not a crime not to know, but guessing can get you in big trouble.

Any leadership principles you would add?
