Give respect to everyone and treat everyone as an equal.  Always acknowledge everyone each day.

Your words matter.

Ask for help when you need it.

Fix the broken processes quickly so you set your team up to be successful.

Motivate and empower others by finding out their talents and allowing them to incorporate them into their work.

Give your employees a ton of feedback and also try to keep them in the loop as much as you can.

Don’t ask someone to do something you aren’t willing to do yourself.

Always be training and coaching and to always, always, always keep your promises.

Lead by example – an effective leader inspires others and builds trust.

If part of the project is failing, take personal responsibility for it. If the project is succeeding, give credit to the team.
