No. 22 – Begin with Praise and Honest Appreciation

Great leaders have a way of inspiring you to new heights and drawing the most from your abilities. But how could they do that if they never made you feel appreciated or worthy of achieving great things?

Dale Carnegie proposes that as a leader you begin with praise and honest appreciation. That lets people know they are headed in the right direction and that you support them.

Put on your wet suit, this one gets deep.
