While recuperating from covid-19 this week, I enjoyed reading this post by Dan Rockwell looking at four ways to improve your leadership.
First - Quiet your ego.Relax! You aren’t better than others. You don’t control the world. The universe won’t flinch when you’re gone.Second - Embrace learning.
Compared to all the things that could be known, you’re a moron.
“Those who think they know, don’t.” Edward de Bono
Learning and relearning are more important than the things you know.
Third - Lift others.
Arrogance puts people down. Greatness lifts people.
How do people feel about themselves after spending time with you?
Fourth - Stand for something that matters.
Being great requires unbending commitment and unquenchable tenacity.
Great to be reminded of those things.
