Looking back, there are 4 key skills that Jon Stewart wielded effectively, that we can all learn from looking ahead.
1. Treat Your People Well
As you saw in the last episode, and even the week leading up to the show, Jon made it abundantly clear that he wanted to thank those close to him and expected nothing in return. He could have used the whole hour to deliver his final rounds of messages. Yet instead, he chose to recognize those that made everything possible. And as each person came back to celebrate him and say good bye, it was very apparent that he treats his people well. As a leader, it is usually never about the leader, but always about the people, and helping them reach their goals as well as the company goals.
