What’s the difference between a good manager and a poor one? This leadership training video will answer that question by sharing ten success secrets of great managers.

In my research over the last decade, these secrets became apparent. My study involved clients and the latest industry data. Guess what?  Any supervisor, team leader, manager or executive can learn them with a commitment to excellence. But, it requires some changes. I have learned that, if you want your team to be better, you have to be a better leader.

My business partner Doug and I, published these secrets in out book, Superstar Leadership. We created the Superstar Leadership Model as a way to remember and apply the principles.

WCW, IntegrityLeadershipCharacteristicIntegrity ties all of these together. Without it, managers can’t build trust. Without trust the team won’t excel. With it, the possibilities for breakthrough performance is incredible.

Most managers do some of these strategies some of the time. (We have to remember, over 50% are failing) Great managers do these in concert with one another consistently over time. Managers that sustain their efforts, achieve the superior outcomes.

If you are a manager, take advantage of the principles in this how to leadership video. Also, go to the Superstar Leadership Blog for reinforcement material.
