· Recognize and reward achievement with creative nonmonetary rewards—and engage team members

· Model effective confrontation—often bypassing your default mode and intentionally choosing a style that works better

· Keep everyone in the loop about organizational news, strategic plans, and (especially) bad news—before they hear it from the grapevine

· Facilitate a culture of accountability—one in which team members are also held accountable to each other, and you to them

· Stretch your team—taking their skills and experiences to the next level by offering challenging assignments

· Stay focused on solutions, not barriers—and develop a culture where complaining becomes the impetus for solving problems
