Leadership Isn’t All About You

Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

It’s about your team.  It’s about the people who choose to work with you on a daily basis.  Marshall Goldsmith, author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There, talks about how when a leaders is successful, the whole team takes credit, not just the one at the top.  Read the full article here.

Goldsmith says, “Truly great leaders…recognize how silly it is to believe that a coach or a leader is the key to an organization’s success. The best leaders understand that long-term results are created by all of the great people doing the work — not just the one person who has the privilege of being at the top.”

  1. Yeah, Goldsmith is great. If we extend this concept to workshop facilitators, the best ones give the participants the experience of how they are the ones who did it all themselves. “Nobody and nothing can effect your experiential universe but you, because you have a free will.” Change is through choice, and facilitators can only motivate and inspire that choice in the direction of change. That’s good leadership.
