7. Teach someone to do something.

One of the hardest things for many people to learn when they transition from being an individual performer to a leader is to take the time to teach others to do things rather than just doing them themselves. But we're all grateful to the people who take the time to mentor us, and we remember them sometimes even long after they're gone.

8. Listen.

Often, the best thing to say is nothing at all. That's not just to avoid saying the wrong thing, but also to stay quiet long enough to listen to others. It can be the greatest gift we have to offer--simply to listen actively and truly hear what others have to say.

Yes, I ALSO love teaching, and I think listening is underrated, though with plenty of lip service, ironically enough!

There's a big difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
