Re: Be one of the gang
Another thing that proves to be sucessful is to never forget you were not born being a boos. Most likely you climbed the career ladder passing through all the steps your employees are at today.
Remember that keeps you being one of the gang at the same time that you have the tools to lead your gang. Otherwise, you weren't the boss. :D
Plus, you can be an inspiration and role model for your employees, and maybe one day one of them becomes a boss and remembers you as their example and inpiration.
In other words, you can be a good influence creating future good bosses.
Having a good memory, then, will also buy you a lot of pizza. :)
