Definition of a Beyond You Leader
A leader who fearlessly and selflessly empowers leaders around them, as well as those coming along behind him.
The value of a life is always measured by how much of it was given away.
We celebrate generosity and selflessness but we envy accumulation.
To become a Beyond You Leader:
- Make as few decisions as possible. Empower those around you by saying "You decide."
As your organizational power increases, your organizational IQ decreases.
- Work for your team. Help them get the job done by asking "What can I do to help?"
He suggests asking those who report to you what one thing you can do to help them get the job done.
- Empty your cup. Spend time investing the success of others by passing along your knowledge.
You can't completely fill any one persons cup but you can empty yours.
If your leadership isn't all about you, it will live beyond you.
