Live A Life Of Impact And Significance As A Leader
“You cannot grow others unless you grow yourself. I think a lot of times we think, well, I’ve gotta get these people to follow me and that leads to a lot of external factors or a lot of tactics of trying to fix somebody or fix the situation or fix the team. But the reality is if we spent 80% of our time or more on ourselves and getting our inside right, then we give people around us the freedom to do the same.” – Richard Rierson
