Leadership is about those who follow. General Douglas MacArthur said, “A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.”
Leaders can become so enamored with leading that they focus on themselves, forgetting their influence in the lives of others.
Interestingly, General MacArthur emphasized that a leader is just as good or bad as followers make them.
Listen to those who are led. What do they say or do? Careful observation reveals a great deal about leadership.
A true and lasting impact is built upon a leader who places emphasis upon others rather than themselves.
