Over the past few weeks, John David Mann and I have been discussing Ben’s Five Keys to Legendary Leadership from our latest book, It’s Not About You. In this chat, we conclude with Key #5: Share The Mantle.
Sometimes, the most difficult challenge of being a successful leader is that you now know you are a successful leader. When that happens, an easy trap to fall into is forgetting that a large part of your success is realizing that it isn’t about you, but about those you lead (or, more accurately, serve). Have you ever seen someone go from where they LEAD to now thinking that they are the DEAL. The letters have changed; so has the effectiveness. And everyone involved suffers.
Great leaders share the mantle. One way they do this is by keeping the focus on where it belongs. Of course, if you are that leader, then you know that “It’s Not About You.”
