Peter Aquino, who has worked in the telecommunications industry for 26 years, has identified three qualities he believes are essential for leaders and managers:

Delegate.

“Because you can do more if you have strong talent. It’s the ‘cloning yourself’ theory.”

Trust but verify.

“Ultimately, when small companies are fighting big companies you can only have a sustainable advantage if you execute well. You can’t afford to not execute well.”

Be fair and balanced.

“I like to think I’m fair. I’m not a yeller, screamer, that kind of thing. The highs are pretty controlled and the lows are equally controlled. I don’t get overly crazy coming or going. Sure, you like to celebrate when you win, and you like to learn from your mistakes. But being controlled is very important.”
