Leaders often attempt to put greatness into others. Somehow, they fall prey to the mindset that if they can put greatness into others, they will be great.
John Buchan said, “The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.”
We all need to learn this lesson; greatness is already in each and every person. Our task is to elicit what is already there.
Leaders must work to draw out and use the greatness that exists in each person, helping them reach their potential by implementing their own deep seated greatness.
This is leadership!
