Is Your Team Only As Strong As Its Leader?

If you want to have successful teams in your organisation, make sure you have successful leaders. What do I mean by this? The way a team is led has a major impact on its success. In fact, when I asked team members from within a large financial institution what they wanted from a team leader, they identified the following values:. Team members want to trust and be trusted. They felt it was important to be able to trust their team leader to actually do what he said he was going to do. Trust is the outcome of kept promises and is something that is earned, not bought or obtained easily.

Over the years, I have worked with many great leaders as an executive educator and coach. One client, Charlie not his real name , in particular is still one of my favorites.

Below are my top leadership quotes of all time. A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves. The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant. Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
