Good managers avoid saying these things to their teams
Forbes
God bless the bad managers we've struggled under, those toads and zombies who taught us so many valuable leadership lessons (all lessons of the How Not to Lead variety). We still remember those managers years later, with their tempers, idiosyncracies and neuroses. Sometimes it takes years to recognize the power in the leadership advice our former, lousy managers imparted.

How fire officers can out-communicate technology
Fire Chief
If someone were asked what your greatest attribute was, how would she respond? Many of us would expect to be described as professional, honest, driven, even competent. But how many would describe you as a great communicator? One of the greatest traits of leadership is one's communication skills. Think about President Abraham Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address.

Forbes

No one likes to be lectured in the workplace. As a leader, you need to communicate with your employees to deliver strategic direction, reinforce corporate culture and rally the troops to achieve company goals and objectives.

Why good managers are so rare
Harvard Business Review
Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analysis suggests that they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82 percent of the time. Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year, and having too many of them can bring down a company. Businesses that get it right, however, and hire managers based on talent will thrive and gain a significant competitive advantage.
