To become a great leader we must be a servant leader. Only through service and sacrifice do we become great.

“To become a great leader we must be a servant leader. Only through service and sacrifice do we become great.” – Jon Gordon, The Carpenter

The ultimate joy is making others great. The ultimate accolade for a leader is when the team performs at elite levels. Leadership is built on building connections, demonstrating skill, and cultivating trust. Leaders serve the organization, leaders are willing to walk that extra mile, and leaders synthesize situations to bring out the best in others.

Each of us is a leader – each of us leads in our 20 square feet. Regardless of our roles, regardless of our position in any organization, we all serve and sacrifice for elite performance.

How can you serve others today? What can you do to lift-up others on the team? Today, make a commitment to purposefully and intentionally serve three people in a way you wouldn’t have yesterday. Press pause . . . act with purpose . . . and serve the team.
