It's Not About You. (The Best Leaders Focus On Others.)
Being a good leader means ignoring yourself; your accomplishments, your needs, your wants, and your recognition. Leading a team means thatyou have to focus on the job, and your team. If a boss is focused on his or her own recognition, that boss can't effectively coach and lead the team on the project. Good leaders need to be goal oriented and team-focused. Growing your employees should be a primary focus, followed by the goal of the project. If you focus on your employees, they will naturally be focused on the goal, and be capable of accomplishing what needs to be done.
CEOs and employers that focus on meeting the needs of their team are able to turn the teams focus to meeting the needs of clients. That is what leads to successful company.
