  • #13: The Power of Attitude with Mark Schulman, P!NK's drummer,

    < 20:12 >

    Effective leaders empower the people they lead. Too much 'telling' is autocratic and dictatorial, and doesn't serve those they lead. Being a good listener is a trait of an effective leader. When people feel heard, they feel empowered.

    Great leaders empower the capability of everyone around them. When things go well, they let others take the credit, yet when things go wrong, are willing to take responsibility.
