It all starts with hiring the best.  The job of good leadership is NOT to produce more followers but more LEADERS.  Start by hiring them.  Three winning qualities you should look for when hiring.  Have a purpose and create alignment around it (goal congruence).  Don’t forget they are still young (you were once) and treat them with respect (they will eventually earn it!).  Hire and develop critical thinkers (holistic – both sides of brain).  Understand their needs (humans), earn their trust and respect through your own ethical behavior.  Develop relationships with clients by providing value (take risk and provide knowledge).  Understand your market (its drivers) and economy.  Competition and free market capitalism (does it still work?).  Personal behavior and modeling the way (being a good example).  Trust but verify (annual ethics survey).
