It’s Not About You

| November 18, 2008

In today’s Tuesday Reading “It’s Not About You, Robert Joss, Phillip H. Knight Professor and Dean, Stanford Graduate School of Business, recalls a Jack Welch talk about leadership and Welch’s book, Winning.  As Joss recalls, Welch’s most profound comment was that leadership is not about you;  it’s about the people who work for you.  “The day you become a leader, your job is to take people who are already great and make them unbelievable.”

Stop for a moment and ask the question:  What are you doing today to transform your staff?  It’s your responsibility to enable them to get to the next “there.”
