    Hi! Lui: Thanks for letting me know this guy’s blog. I like his definition of leadership:encourage and train your staff, talk with customers, monitor quality and spend as much time as you can with “non-managerial” actions

    Thanks, and keep the good information coming.

    My last word is this: the very best leadership, I am convinced, is engaging in as few “managerial” activities as possible. By this I mean creating plans and budgets, setting strategies, setting up mergers and acquisitions, discussing policies, holding meetings, marketing, branding, analyzing data and the like.

    Nearly all such actions get in the way of real business and lie at the heart of most problems that leaders face. If you must do something, encourage and train your staff, talk with customers, monitor quality and spend as much time as you can with “non-managerial” actions like inventing new products and services and improving old ones.

    Thanks a lot Charlie for reading and finding it helpful! I really like that encouragement about not going managerial work. Unfortunately, it seems so many people don’t appreciate or recognize the importance of such work. It’s the other stuff – the paper pushing and talking about how much you paper pushed – that seems to get people the recognition.

    I hope you keep on reading!

    Cheers,
