As Michael Mescon, founder and chairman of The Mescon Company says, "Handle every single transaction with each and every person, no matter who that person is, as if you will have to live with that person in a very small room for the rest of your life." The best managers today are energy managers--inspiring the best from others on a daily basis. They know that the energy they spark in others starts with their own energy. They have to be excited and passionate about work to get others to feel the same way. This is true even when they're in a bad mood. In fact, they know that their bad mood can affect everyone in the workgroup.
