Know what you’re about;
Who you are;
And plan to go far.
State your objectives;
Explain with directives;
Let others ask questions;
And offer suggestions.
Affirm what you see;
To set the priority;
Make expectations clear;
And get your team in gear.
Announce any questions;
No questions are dumb questions;
All questions must be thought out;
The importance brought about.
Dare to decide;
Help the team get allied;
Help them have zest;
So they can progress.
Decide who is on your team;
Surround yourself with talent supreme;
Let those closest to the work decide;
Then the team stays in stride.
Put team members in proper roles;
Then make sure there are controls;
Focus on character and drive;
With these qualities the team will thrive.
