2 Quotes That Grabbed My Attention

“The three keys of successful transformation are leadership, talent and culture. Talent works at the speed of culture.”  —Renata Lerch

“We spend a lot of time with leaders telling them what to do, but we don’t tell them what to stop.”  —Marshall Goldsmith

1 Story That Made Me Think

A wonderful mentor of mine once gave me a copy of Developing the Leaders Around You​ by John Maxwell. In that book, John writes about Dale Carnegie, who was a master at identifying potential leaders. Once he was asked by a reporter how he had managed to hire 43 millionaires. Carnegie noted that the men had not been millionaires when they started working for him. They had become millionaires as a result. The reporter next wanted to know how he had developed these men to become such valuable leaders. Carnegie replied, “Men (and women) are developed the same way gold is mined. Several tons of dirt must be moved to get an ounce of gold. But you don’t go into the mine looking for dirt. You go in looking for the gold.” 

How can you develop people into valuable leaders?

Look for the gold. 

It’s not hard to see dirt and find that – anyone can do that. 

Leaders look for the gold in people and help bring it out. 

The more you look for, the more you will find.
