How Can I Be a Good Leader?
CEO, Game Designer/Lantana Games - AdvisoryCloudTM
A boss directs. A leader leads. When starting up, it's very easy to go into "boss mode" and order your team to achieve your goals, meanwhile you'll just sit back and let that money and credibility roll in. Unfortunately you'll get quickly called out by your team, by your peers, and by the media. The best leaders are the take-charge types, who can put together a plan of action, execute on it, and adjust it when it's not working. A leader must be ready to fail, wear any hat, tackle challenges, and help pull - not push - the team toward greatness.
