If you are new to a leadership role, let this be a word of caution: Don't dominate your subordinates. "It's usually not an effective strategy unless you have bad news to deliver and/or there's an imminent problem with only one available response," explains Francie Dalton, president of Dalton Alliances Inc., a business consulting firm based in Columbia, Md. "Dominance has to do with maintaining complete control. If your objective is to maintain control at all times, you're likely to lose your credibility."
