“A leader’s role is not to control people or stay on top of things, but rather to guide, energize and excite.”
Whether you are a titled leader, or simply in a position to lead in the moment in your work group, your family, or community organization, remember this: being a leader is not about control, but rather about facilitating others’ success and achievement. It’s not about you – it is about them. Only by facilitating their success will you find long term success for yourself. Though this fact is well known, few are able to act in this manner, getting lost instead in the human frailties of greed, hubris, and self-indulgence. Be one of the great leaders rather than one of the many mediocre managers.
