surrender

By April 11, 2012Leadership

“A leader simply operates at their best when they understand their ability to influence is much more fruitful than their ability to control. Here’s the thing – the purpose of leadership is not to shine the spotlight on yourself, but to unlock the potential of others so they can in turn shine the spotlight on countless more. Control is about power – not leadership.  Surrender allows a leader to get out of their own way and focus on adding value to those whom they serve. Forget span of control and think span of influence.”
