Great leadership requires more than just the respect of your staff. Learn how great leaders get everyone to follow along. Also: How to handle employees who fail cybersecurity tests.

The boss is the boss, but there’s no reason that subordinates feel like they have to follow the rules. The right kind of leadership strategy might make them really want to do so.

A new CNBC article shares several tips from The Business Sergeant’s Field Manual, a book from leadership coach Chris Hallberg.

Hallberg notes that admirable leaders are brutally honest and decisive. “You’re actually doing everyone a favor when you say what needs to be said rather than tip-toeing around the problem,” he says.

He is also a big proponent of employing organizational operating systems. A system saves time and money and allows employees to have defined roles. “With a guide in place, 90 percent of the day-to-day can be run by systems, allowing you to give the remaining 10 percent of your undivided time and personal attention,” he says.

Hallberg goes on to say that great bosses support middle managers, give people leadership challenges, and are fair and consistent.
