Leadership is all about people, inspiring and motivating people to become the very best version of themselves. That's the essence of leadership; helping your people reach their full potential and helping your team maximize their gifts. What makes you effective as a leader is not the title you hold. Rather it’s demonstrating an unrelenting focus on helping others succeed in their collective efforts. One of the hallmark traits of great leaders is that they can see greatness in others when they can't see it in themselves.
