The conscious leader gives in secret, and praises with silence.

He does not need to take credit for everything he does, nor give his team credit for every single little thing they do.

In the Montessori schools they say do not praise the child for every single thing he or she does. Let them find out what it is to be intrinsically motivated, to do something for its own sake, for their own personal inner satisfaction and not for praise or rewards.

The conscious leader passes on this lesson by not praising or rewarding every single thing a person does. He provides the space for them to discover the intrinsic satisfaction of being their best for its own sake and not for rewards.
