• Be a good team builder.

    As a leader, you'll need the support of your team. In selecting your team members, seek people who can understand the vision and support it. Then, identify those who fit the roles they're required to fill.

    • Be careful to select the team based on merit, not emotions. Sometimes, when people recognize you've given them an opportunity based on an emotional position, they use every chance they get to play on your emotions for favors. You want team members who know they've been given an opportunity based on merit.
