From the poorest societies in the world to the corner offices of its major corporations, aspiring fighters face the same basic challenge: how to gain power and understanding not just to manage but to lead. For more than a decade, we have come from three different perspectives, exploring what is on the way. Robin researches race, gender, and leadership; Frances focuses on training senior managers, and Anne works on building social entrepreneurs around the world.
We have worked with hundreds of leaders in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, in more than 30 industry sectors, and in more than 50 countries at various stages of development. Throughout the diversity, one clear pattern has emerged: Organizers, firefighters, and organizers have unwittingly prevented themselves from becoming separate leaders. As a result, companies do not get the best out of their people, and employees reduce their chances.

6 Rules To Manage Yourself
- Work hard
You need to be prepared to work hard. Understand that this will not change anytime soon and it will get better. You cannot expect your team to perform well if you are not willing to put in the effort yourself.
Order and time management are essential. To be successful, you need to be brutal in your time. Find ways to avoid procrastination – it’s a waste of time.
If you learn to see managers like me, you may be able to focus better. It is a work in progress. No one sees it but it is basic.
- Stay healthy
Often hard work means being busy. It’s too busy sometimes. It is difficult to prioritize what you need to manage first or consistently.
Your health may seem to mean the obvious. But how often do you skip lunch to finish work? Your life must come first if you want to live a long life. It should also be treated consistently.
I can always write general advice, but the main thing I think you should consider is your anxiety. Mental health is just as important as your body. Start seeing where you can control or change something. Accept and adapt.
- Speak the truth
Ideally, honesty is the best policy. However, do not just start over with all the negative thoughts you may have about someone.
Most people read at a young age– if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. This still applies to all areas of life. Don’t just lie. You will not be hated for saying how you really feel but you will be known for it.
The employer expects honesty when hiring you. It may not be easy to give bad news but there will still be trust between you.
- Sharing is caring
In my organization, we share everything we know. The same applies to all individual tasks – including managers and directors. The more you pull, the more you will come back.
Some people make the mistake of believing that there is a mental contest between partners. Therefore, you are withholding what you know from the person in charge. How do you expect them to contribute to your team?
- Make decisions
No one likes to be around someone sitting on the phone – especially if it’s your boss. You need to be the one to take the leap. There will be times when you will have made a mistake but you never know what will happen. That’s its beauty.
Making a difficult decision can be easily done. Take all the facts and consider them. Ask for advice from those around you. Listen to that gut feeling and your understanding. Finally, have the courage to do so.
Believe that if it is a mistake you can learn from it. And you know that if it’s wrong you have evidence to support what you believe is the right decision.
- Have fun, always
As soon as you stop enjoying it, you lose your love. To do anything right you have to be passionate about it. Instead of asking, is this really what I want to do? Focus on finding enjoyment for your good work.
In a turbulent world, you need to see and celebrate that little victory.
It’s about balance. Not the balance of work-life but the balance of work. Learn to identify the times when you should be determined. Most of the time, find jokes in most situations. You can see that you have been enjoying yourself all the time.
