Leadership is often viewed as influencing and instilling greatness in others. However, true leadership brings out the greatness already inside others?
John Buchan said, “The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.”
Consider how we can achieve this:
Believe people have greatness within.
Arrange opportunities to be responsible and accountable.
Allow them to fail.
Provide support when they do.
Create a team atmosphere.
These are just five suggestions, but when applied, they help us truly lead.
