No Nonsense leadership

As a leader, you transfer qualities by transferring your knowledge and experience to your team. In my opinion, you will have to set the example yourself and train your team to become team leaders. Listening well to the wishes and setting the example "this is how I do it" which turns out to be successful is more effective than just saying "this is how it should be" which does not improve effectiveness.

"Great leaders lead by example before requesting anyone else to do anything.  Not only do they talk the talk, but they also walk the walk
