Leaders tend to think the job only gets done if they oversee it. Another thought is if you want to get the job done right, you have to do it yourself.
Is this true leadership?
Patrick Lencioni said, “As a leader, you’re probably not doing a good job unless your employees can do a good impression of you when you’re not around.”
As leaders, we must be reproduced by the continuation of the work when we are no longer around.
A leader’s legacy is the goal. John Maxwell said it this way, “Legacy comes when we put leaders in positions to do great things without us.”
