If you want to lead a group of people and be a better manager, don’t belittle or trash your group. If you do you won’t have a group to lead. A person leading a bunch of idiots doesn’t need to be very bright, but a person leading a group of clever, reliable, skilled people will be assumed to be even brighter than them. Talk your people up not down, it enhances your status, but you’ll need to be a leader as well.
This most vital of management skills – leadership does not come easy, good managers have to work very hard. And that’s not to say long hours, it’s about the effort and the self-discipline, it’s part of the reason 80% of management restructures fail.

Test your leadership attitude, if you find it hard to think in terms of ‘we’ then you’re probably not a natural leader.
