What Not to Do as an Emerging Leader

brad-6As an up-and-coming emerging leader, don't do these:

1. Believe you are the answer.

2. Stop honoring those who’ve laid the groundwork before you.

3. Write off all the folks who finally helped you “arrive” and who might suddenly seem insignificant or unimportant.

4. Remove yourself from reality by surrounding yourself with “handlers” and those only interested in being “yes” men and women.

5. Regard yourself as crucial and ultimately more important than all others in connection to the success of the organization or project.

6. Stop learning since you now know everything.

7. Make the mission of the organization all about you instead of truly about the mission.

Don't do these.
