Leadership with great tips from an article titled; 10 Habits of Super Likeable Leaders, by Travis Bradberry, co-author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0

1. They Form Personal Connections
2. They’re Approachable
3. They’re Humble
4. They’re Positive
5. They’re Even-Keeled
6. They’re Generous
7. They Demonstrate Integrity
8. They Read People Like A Book
9. They Appreciate Potential
10. They Have Substance
Daniel Quinn said, “Charisma only wins people’s attention. Once you have their attention, you have to have something to tell them.” Likeable leaders understand that their knowledge and expertise are critical to the success of everyone who follows them. Therefore, they regularly connect with people to share their substance (as opposed to superficial small talk). Likeable leaders don’t puff themselves up or pretend to be something they’re not, because they don’t have to. They have substance, and they share it with their people.
Bringing It All Together
Likeability isn’t a birthright; it results from acquirable skills that are crucial to your professional success. And just like any other professional skills, you can study the people who have them, copy what works, and adapt them to your own style. Try these ten strategies and watch your likeability soar.

The leader who leads out of fear is the one who will never truly get the best out of his people and they will eventually leave.

The leader who earns respect and trust from employees is the one you will give 200% for and be with for the long haul.

"Work for someone who believes in you, because when they believe in you, they'll invest in you." - Marissa Mayer. A quote which struck a chord with me - like your story did!

When leader creates an environment in which people feel that someone has my back they will do extraordinary things.

There are many humble people who toil hard to assist you while you are busy doing your very important job. If you stay in hotels, don't forget to leave a tip for the housekeeper, to show how much you appreciate the clean comfortable room they provide you with. That $5-10 means nothing to you and everything to them.

A very human story! When I was in the army, comfort of our drivers was of utmost concern. There was no question of their sleeping in the vehicle. They deserved almost same level of ease and convenience as officers. It was understood that their welfare is very important for the morale of all soldiers.

Really good real life story. Caring for people as individuals and not based on their job or wealth is key factor of a good leader. Doing something for somebody who cannot return back the favor is key for giving.

I love a boss who will fight for his team- incredible!
