The Secret

Leaders who develop leaders multiply their ability.

There is a secret to leadership that many people miss. It’s not just growing your leadership and influence, it’s growing and developing leaders around you.

What percent of your time and energy is devoted to developing the leaders around you? 

When answering this question, think along the lines of:
  • Career development conversations
  • Investing in the personal development of others
  • Providing opportunities for growth
  • Believing in and providing affirmation of others gifts and abilities
  • Training and developing other leaders’ skills
Leaders who gather followers add to what they can accomplish. Leaders who develop leaders multiply their ability.

Leadership reminders to grow your impact and results: 

  • Shift from doer to leader
  • Remember, one is too small of a number to achieve results and greatness
  • The quickest way to shift from adder to multiplier is to invest in your leaders
  • For every leader you develop or attract, you gain that individuals horsepower PLUS the horsepower of all the people that person leads.
My challenge to you: Start where you are and invest a small amount of your time in developing and building up leaders around you. To go to the highest level of leadership, you must learn to be a multiplier.

Here’s to Building Leaders at Every Level!
