I received this email recently:
Ron, a question for you.
If you had to pass one and only one leadership principle to others leaders, What would that one principle be and why that one?
That’s a hard question, but I thought for a minute and came to a thought.
Here’s my reply:
It’s not about you.
Because, leadership is about something bigger than you.
If ever we begin to believe its about us, or our agenda, or our plan…or even more dangerous…our people…we will become controlling, prideful and eventually ineffective.
How would you answer?
