A good leader knows when to sacrifice things for the good of the team. Read on for our top 10.

    1. Late nights

    ‘Early to bed early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’.

    2. Perfectionism

    Becoming overly conscientious creates an internal voice that continually says ‘you are not good enough’.

    3. Negative company

    We become like the people we spend time with, avoid those that bring out the worst in you or sap your energy.

    4. Lying

    Whether we are telling a porker or exaggerating our ability, the truth will disappoint. Instead practice humility.

    5. Procrastinating

    We look to leaders for decisions, so don’t delay, decide today.

    6. Breaking promises

    Manners matter just as much in business as at home. Well-mannered managers stand out.

    7. Moaning

    Few things are perfect but whinging rarely improves a situation. Say nothing, instead do something to make the situation better.

    8. Making comparisons with others

    This will drain your mood and bring you down. What you can’t change, ignore.

    9. Resisting change

    It simply delays the inevitable, instead embrace innovation and use it to drive improvement.

    10. Flying solo

    It can be tough to cajole and motivate others but teams succeed where individuals falter.
