Charles A. Ray

There’s always a fine line between bragging and promoting your people, but telling the world what your staff has done, as far as I’m concerned, is one of a leader’s responsibilities. It can be done without sounding like bragging, and your own role, which should be creating the environment so that your followers can do great things, shouldn’t be mentioned. Those who count will know that as leader, you bask in the reflected glory of your subordinates’ accomplishments. It also goes without saying that when things go wrong, as leader, you accept responsibility, and quietly take actions to correct them.
