“Leadership is the art of giving people a platform for spreading ideas that work.” ~ Seth Godin
Let’s face it. Nobody likes a ball hog.
We’ve all encountered people like this. Growing up playing sports it was the kid who had to take every shot and get the credit when she/he scored.
Entering the workplace, it’s the leader that feels the need to make every decision and get the glory for the success of the organization.
That may build ego, but it doesn’t build a team.
Here’s a key to leadership success: pass the ball.
It empowers your team and gets the ball down the court.
Ultimately, it creates a win-win for everybody involved.
After all, nobody likes a ball hog.
How can you empower people in your organization by giving them a platform to spread ideas that work?
