How can you tell if you’re actually leading?
I believe that you’re truly leading a group, team or an individual, when your actions influence their ability to grow on a daily basis. This allows you to shrink, as the team begins to solve problems and develop even more leaders.
So your leadership is measured against the level of success others attain. That’s servant leadership at it’s finest.
It’s not about you.
To truly lead, you need to keep yourself small, while allowing others to shine.
