The more you expand your power to those around you, the more powerful you become.
True power isn’t individual. Exceptional leaders exponentially expand influence through the empowerment of those around them. Authoritarian, top down leaders, are limited to their own knowledge and skill. Collaborative leadership is limitless; it has endless capacity.
Don’t lead by your title or organizational authority. If you truly want to lead, do so through trust, respect, and service. Model the behavior you desire from others; lead with humility, kindness, and love.
