My wife, best friend and business partner gave me a compliment!!! Must put it on my blog! If you know she’s the biggest perfectionist on the planet, this really counts. She made my day by tweeting: “9 reasons why he’s a better leader than I am”.
Reason #1: He’s one of the most humble people I know.
Reason #2: He’s very open about his weaknesses and weirdness.
Reason #3: He strikes a great balance between being kind and being firm.
Reason #4: He encourages people’s craziness.
Reason #5: He’s a scary-good detector of untapped potential in people.
Reason #6: He exudes an infectious enthusiasm in the workplace.
Reason #7: He has a great understanding of the dynamics on his teams.
Reason #8: He admits he’s wrong.
Reason #9: He listens.
