Just because you’re the boss doesn’t mean you want to spoon-feed employees with your wisdom. Welcome honest feedback from everyone. Steer clear of the humorous directive given by the late Kemmons Wilson, founder of Holiday Inn, “When I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you.”

Resist the urge to bark orders even if you think you have all the answers. Remember George C. Marshall’s line, “I don’t want you fellows sitting around asking me what to do. I want you to tell me what to do.”
