“Weak leaders have the luxury of looking after themselves. Great leaders have the honor of looking after others.” —Simon Sinek

What’s your motive for being a leader?

Leadership isn’t about you; it’s about your team. If you’re in a leadership role because you like the power and get fulfillment from giving orders, than do yourself and your team a favor and get out now.

Weak leaders focus on simply giving orders. They’re worried about their personal success and are convinced that all will be okay if everyone just does what they say. In reality, that approach is ineffective in our complex world.

Great leaders don’t issue directives and micro-manage their staff. They understand that success is dependent upon their ability to articulate a clear vision and develop the leadership mindset within their team.

If you want to be a great leader, let go of the need to control. Set the vision, develop the knowledge and skills on your team, and get out of their way. You’ll be amazed at what they are capable of when you do.

What step are you taking this week to develop leaders?

Make it an excellent week!
