It’s incredible to me how many mid-level or senior managers don’t get this statement:

“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”–Jack Welch

Certainly not roping all leaders into this statement. It is sad more often than not that managers become self-involved and forget it’s the team that wins!

success, leadership, work

If you find yourself in a senior management position, take ego out of the equation. Surround yourself with a team that fills gaps in your own shortcomings. Smart managers through the ages have surrounded themselves with people smarter than themselves. Allowed those individuals to do what they do best.

Many managers will not do this in fear of their own job. This is a big mistake. When your team shines you shine as the coach. Get fear out of your head!

Surround yourself with world-class people and let them do the job you hired them to do. Inspire, delegate, and set expectations. Pretty simple!
