    Leaders set the direction by helping others see what lies ahead and rising to the challenges. They see everyone’s potential and encourage and inspire those around them.

    Here are 10 of the many ways to lead effectively.

    1. Take responsibility – Take responsibility for the situation, identify the changes you need to make and make them.
    2. Be truthful – Honesty includes transparency, keeping your word, following through on promises, and delivering on time. When leaders say one thing, but do another, they erode trust.
    3. Be Courageous – Walk through fire (a crisis) first. Take calculated risks that demonstrate commitment to a larger purpose.
    4. Acknowledge Failure – It makes it OK for your team to do the same and defines failure as part of the process of becoming extraordinary.
    5. Be Persistent – Try, try again. Go over, under or around any hurdles to show that obstacles don’t define your company or team.
    6. Create Solutions – Don’t dwell on problems; instead be the first to offer solutions and then ask your team for more.
    7. Listen – Ask questions. Seek to understand. You’ll receive valuable insights and set a tone that encourages healthy dialogue.
    8. Collaborate – Delegate tasks to others to encourage an atmosphere in which people can focus on their core strengths.
    9. Take Care of Yourself – A mentally and physically healthy team will perform at a high level.
    10. Roll up your sleeves – Get your hands dirty! You’ll inspire greatness by handling the tough situations personally.
