Archives For raising leaders

“The highest calling of leadership is to unlock the potential of others.”

This was spoken by Carly Fiorina at the recent Global Leadership Summit I attended. She is the former CEO of HP and now heads up several non profits. She was one of the most impressive speakers in a star-studded lineup.

I love her focus on leadership being geared towards developing others.

So many of our corporate, political, and even religious leadership examples are self focused. Focusing on developing others is actually is common sense.

Fiorina shared, “An organization cannot achieve potential unless people in it achieve theirs.”

Without developing people, our team will never reach the heights possible.

Releasing leaders includes delegation with trust, a humility to see the potential in others, and having a plan of succession so your organization outlive you.
