I was reading one of my favorite blogs Slacker Manager and found this post "Whats in your management bag?"
Listed are 6 of the 12 items listed in David Zinger's management bag.
1) A sense of humor as mirth makes for good management.
2) A sense of humanity to realize we manage people and that management is a very human endeavor.
3) A strong dose of integrity, honesty, and authenticity.
4) A belief in ourselves, others, and the organization.
5) A passion for results and accomplishment.
6) A love of strong interpersonal communication.
I would add - Transparency to this list.
