Simon Sinek’s new book, Leaders Eat Last, does a good job of pointing out what makes leadership a dream rather than a nightmare.
Similar to Sinek, I’ve always said…
The really sad thing is that, as parents, as associates, as lovers, and as bosses, we forget this simple formula. Our children, our associates, our partners, and our employees are always looking for evidence that we really see them. When they don’t detect that evidence, they quit listening to our lectures, they shut down, they play the game, they leave, or something worse.
The best thing we can ever do for ourselves and for the people in our lives is to get our ego out of it long enough to do these three things, and be someone worth following.
