Yesterday I had one of my leaders approach me before a seminar.
I really want to talk to you he said. He took my hand looked me in the eyes and said: Can you promise me one thing? What is that? I responded
When you reach the very top, can you promise not to leave the team behind and go somewhere else? can you promise that you will be here with us and continue to help us reach the top?
These moments represent everything I fight for, that is the best recognition that you have built leadership based on respect and not on fear.
A great leader will always put his team interest first and his own second.
