Leading Better

DSN9158-2-LRecently I read the inscription on Andrew Carnegie’s tombstone, “Here lies a man who knew how to enlist in his service better men than himself.”

Great leaders are not threatened by the talents of others. They now that to recruit the best is better than being recruited by the best.

Great leaders recognize the talent in others and serve it to the best of their ability that the talent may develop and flourish. They will never stand in the way of talent and abilities but, when given the opportunity, will do everything within their power to cultivate and grow it.

Great leaders are assured in themselves enough to recognize and appreciate the abilities of others. They are not threatened nor jealous, but rather appreciative and encouraging. By doing so they lead.
