I am challenged by the words of Jon Gordon who describes the difference between good and great leaders as follows:
“Good leaders get people to believe in them. Great leaders inspire people to believe in themselves.”
“Good leaders say, ‘Watch what I can do.’ Great leaders say, ‘Let me show you what you can do.’”
As you lead today, let me challenge you to be great by applying these two simple steps.
First, identify someone and tell them how grateful you are to have them on your team. Remind them that you believe in them.
Second, raise the bar for someone in an area where you know they can succeed and then simply watch and encourage.
Your team needs great leadership today. Don’t settle for good!
Leadership Begins at Home,
What do you think makes a great leader?
