Empower Your People to do Great Things

And so it begins … political season officially kicks off today with the Iowa Caucuses as America seeks to find its next leader.

In the spirit of the season, I was reminded of the quote from former US president, Ronald Reagan … “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”

[Tweet “The best teams have leaders who are focused on making those around them better.”]

As you begin a new month of work you will be tempted to focus on your job. If you really want to be great, spend a bulk of your time focused on your people. Empower, resource, and encourage others to do great things and you will be well on your way to greatness.


Do you know a leader who empowers those around them? What effect do you think it has on their team?
