Here are seven rules which MANAGEMENTMASALA prescribes to aspiring LEADERS: 

Integrity
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP INTEGRITY
A LEADER’s precepts and practices converge. This convergence flows from the quality of being honest and morally upright. A leader has the same rules for himself and for his team members, and does not prescribe one rule for his folks and another for himself.





Principles
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES
A LEADER believes in principles – such as equity, fairness, transparency etc. He articulates his principles so that his folks can clearly see what he wants and what are the norms for right and wrong for the leader. While a good leader does not ruthlessly enforce his principles he lives and articulates his principles in ways that the team understands the value of those principles and the hazards of deviating from them.  


Simplicity
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP SIMPLICITY
The hallmark of a LEADER’s communication is simplicity. Be it the articulation of his beliefs and principles, be it his vision for the organization, he conveys what he wants in a way most members of the team understand clearly most of what the he conveyed most of the time. He builds a shared belief, vision and team goals through his lucid communication and easy and charismatic demeanor.



Respect and Trust
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP RESPECT
A LEADER respects and trusts the team members individually and collectively. For him the team members are not the components of the task-force. He looks at the members of the team as individuals having their own aspirations, dreams and shortcomings. The team members are always work in progress – they have to be enabled to rise to higher levels of capability and competence.He trusts the team and its members and expects them to trust him



Learning
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP LEARNING
A LEADER is a good learner. He has a thirst for knowledge. He encourages the team members to learn. He participates with the team members in the process of learning. Learning is a continuous process for himself and for the team.








Proactive
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP PROACTIVE
A LEADER decides proactively and enables his team members to decide. He is aware that his decisions may not be the best; but he is also clear that often taking the second best decision is better than not taking a decision at all.





Tough love
MANAGEMENT MASALA SEVEN RULES OF LEADERSHIP TOUGH LOVE
A LEADER is tough with his team members; but his toughness is blended with a genuine love for each team member. His love for the team members will be latent in all the bouquets and brickbats he showers on his team members. His serious discussions on the tasks to be accomplished are sprinkled with good-natured humor not only enlivening the discussion but also cementing the team’s espirit de corps.
