A star wants to see himself rise to the top. A leader wants to see those around him rise to the top.

“A star wants to see himself rise to the top. A leader wants to see those around him rise to the top.” ― Simon Sinek  

You know who they are . . . the people with the skill and motivation to be successful, but it is about them. The self-promoter . . . the “I Guy” inside the organization. We value the skills but shake our heads at the behavior. These are the people who do great things – and then take credit for them.

 

We also know the leaders who inspire great things in the organization yet raise others up in celebration. These leaders empower excellence and value the power of the team. Leaders that set high standards, support the work of others, and build a culture of success.

 

What type of leader do you want to be? How do you want people to look at you? To truly be a star, make those around you better. Too truly have success, add to the power of the team. The best way to get to the top of the mountain is to enjoy the journey with a strong team.
