A great friend of mine sent me this quote, and I think it’s a very simple reminder of what leadership is all about, and what you need to do to become a better leader.
It’s amazing how many people don’t see it this way; they see leadership as them being served by others, which totally misses the point.
Now it is true that as a leader you are in charge and that the people who you are leading are doing work towards a goal that maybe you have set, or defined, but once that happens, and you have put the team together, then your job is to help them be successful and achieve that goal.
This means removing roadblocks, providing support and encouragement, giving coaching and guidance, cheerleading and whatever else they need to be successful.
This is the very essence of leadership.
