GETTING STARTED: Congratulations! It's great to be a leader, you've earned it, and your new job is going to be a wild ride -- Take charge of your new team -- The BRAVE leadership success framework: behaviors, relationships, attitudes, values, environment. BUILD YOUR BRAVE LEADERSHIP FROM THE OUTSIDE IN: Environment - get clear on your mission and fields of action -- Values - align yourself and your team with the organization's mission, vision and values - more or less -- Attitude - make crucial choices around your team's strategy, posture, and culture -- Relationships - the heart of leadership -- Behaviors: how you get things done through other people. LEADING SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE TEAMS: With teams of less than 10 people, adopt a start-up mind-set -- Lead teams of 10 to 20 like an extended family -- If you're leading more than 30 people, hierarchy is your friend.
