More material has been written about leadership than one can possible keep up with and remember. There are formulas, logistics, diagrams, suggestions, qualities, and laws that continue to remind us of the ever-changing field of leadership. When we narrow it down, one of the most powerful thoughts about leadership is the responsibility to bring out the best in others. Isn’t that what we all desire?
Although the author is unknown, this quote is amazing. “In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s worth it.”
For all who desire to learn more about leadership, may we always remember that our task in this life is to bring out the best in other people. We all want to be our best, live up to our best, and surround ourselves with people who help us perform at our best. If we can provide this for others, we will discover that people are drawn to follow.
