Bess, You Is My Guru Now

It's no longer politically correct to behead subordinates. But take some leadership advice from the top--tips from Queen Elizabeth I, adapted from Alan Axelrod's entertaining and astute book, Elizabeth I, CEO: Strategic Lessons from the Leader Who Built an Empire (Prentice Hall, $23).Q: What is the basis for sound judgment?

A: Direct all thine actions by good advice and counsel. Q: What makes a good adviser?

A: They will not be corrupted with any manner of gift, and they will be faithful; and without respect of your private will, they will give to you that counsel they think best.Q: How do you motivate others?

A: I honor my honors by bestowing them sparingly. No prince's revenue be so great that they are able to satisfy the insatiable cupidity of men.Edited by Kimberly Weisul
