The most successful bosses and the ones employees respect and follow most easily, and who are most likely to be promoted–tend to share the following eight core beliefs:
1. Business is an ecosystem, not a battlefield.
Average bosses see business as a conflict among companies, departments, and groups. They build armies of troops to order about, demonize competitors as “enemies,” and treat customers as territory to be conquered.
Great bosses see business as a symbiosis through which the most diverse company is most likely to survive and thrive. They create teams that adapt easily to new markets and can quickly form partnerships with other companies, customers, and even competitors.
The very best managers think differently about the nature of the workplace, company, and team dynamics.
