I enjoy reading. A lot. Especially books about leadership. Every once in a while, I come across a book that is so inspiring, I feel like the book and I together can change the world! While on vacation last week, I read such a book. I couldn’t wait to come back to work and share it.
Typically, we may think of leadership as helping the people around us be their best; living up to their potential. Steve Farber‘s newest release, Greater Than Yourself, reminds us that true leadership is more than that. It is an unselfish, generous, authentic act of helping others be even greater than their leaders are.
How do we do that? The book includes an action plan with three keys: Expand Yourself, Give Yourself and Replicate Yourself. Each key includes clear actions that we can take to share all that we are, all the resources we have, and all the knowledge we’ve gained to build up not only employees, but other people we interact with to be great; not just great, to be greater than we are.
Inspired and motivated.
There are no other words to explain what I felt after reading the book. I encourage you to pick up a copy, too. Imagine the potential in your organization if you help develop others to be even greater than you!
Now, it’s your turn. What is the latest addition to your library? How did it inspire you?
