Here are 10 ideas that might make you a better leader for 2015:

  1. Be quick in your thinking and take responsibility for your errors  Everyone still has things to learn. Making decisions that are risky, you might hit pay dirt or fail; there is always a lesson learned.
  2. You should treat everyone as you wish to treated!
  3. You should be able to take a risk by saying “we don’t it this way” but we are going to try something new! Take a chance where you might have to eat your words, but also might learn something new!
  4. Give yourself and staff an excellent work/life balance.
