You can grow by leading followers. But if you want to maximize your leadership and help your organization reach its potential, you need to develop leaders. There is no other way to experience explosive growth. Here’s how to move forward with leader’s math:
• If you develop yourself, you can experience personal success.
• If you develop a team, your organization can experience growth.
• If you develop leaders, your organization can achieve explosive growth.
You will be able to reach your potential and help your organization reach its loftiest goals only if you begin developing leaders instead of merely attracting followers. Leaders who develop leaders experience an incredible multiplication effect in their organizations that can be achieved in no other way.
