“Surround yourself with people who make you a better person.” Author Unknown
Easier said than done, right? Similar to the idea of Thursday’s post on the positive need in leadership, today’s thought rounds out the week with an important area for all of us.
How much better would our perspective in life be with people around us who make us a better person? Please do not misunderstand, this is not about only having people who agree with us or say what we want to hear.
The idea behind this thought is surrounding ourselves with people who know when to encourage and how to approach us when correction is needed. When this happens, life expands and our perspective in leading changes. The natural result is the desire to do the same for others.
Leaders should always direct their attention toward making others around them better. In order to achieve this goal, we need to know each person well enough to know what will make them better. We need to know when to encourage and how to approach with a loving spirit when correction is needed.
