14. Treat Them Like Adults

You're managing highly driven, talented, and accomplished professionals. Chances are, some think they could (or should) be you. Adjust accordingly. That means asking questions and examining all sides instead of rendering snap judgments. Respect their time: Always be prepared, relevant, and succinct in your dealings. Don't micromanage unless they're not meeting expectations. Set boundaries, but be flexible; they have families and responsibilities, too. Keep an open mind. Don't be afraid to accept input (or even criticism). In other words, practice the golden rule.
