“Cooperation proves the quality of leadership.” – James Cash Penney
We are all leaders and we are all followers. We all have our mentors and are someone’s mentors.
The best leaders, the best ones to follow, are those that encourage cooperation rather than competition. If you’re not like this yourself, you need to find a mentor who will lead the way.
- You need to drop the ego, the ideas of scarcity, the struggle for survival.
These are the marks of a poor leader focused on himself and what he lacks.
He lives by the principle of abundance, knowing that there is enough for everyone, let your ego go away when it tells you tht you are the center of the world. These are the marks of a leader focused on the contribution. Who is committed to growing and taking as many people him can with him.
If you already have this openness, congratulations. Cultivate it because you will be a great leader followed and loved by many.
