“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” Jack Welch
Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric, is well known for his insight on leadership and leadership development.
This particular thought is one that emphasizes the necessity of growth, both before and after becoming a leader.
Hearing about those who attempt to lead without growing themselves is not uncommon. Hearing about those who attempt to lead without growing others is also common, and sad.
Spiritual leadership is so necessary when we consider the current situation of the church and world.
However, when spiritual leadership does not grow first and then grow others, everything and everyone suffers.
Success in leadership will be measured in a number of ways. However, the true legacy of leadership is based on growing as a leader and growing others to be leaders.
Be a student of leadership and lead others to be the same.
