Today we continue the series on the ten most important things I have learned from others.
6. Leading from behind is more important than leading from in front (most of the time)
Sometimes, when you are charging ahead, you outdistance the people behind you. When that happens, you are more of a lone wolf than the leader of the pack. Leaders who do everything leave no room for others to grow. Leading from behind means asking people how you can help them and empowering their visions as opposed to telling them what to do to serve yours.
I’ll be away from email for a while, but please feel free to respond to this series and I will get back to you after my return.
Do good and be well,
