Great Leadership Isn't About You

An excerpt from John Michel‘s article on Harvard Business Review:

"The most effective form of leadership is supportive. It is collaborative. It is never assigning a task, role or function to another that we ourselves would not be willing to perform. For all practical purposes, leading well is as simple as remembering to remain others-centered instead of self-centered. To do this, I try to keep these four imperatives in mind:

1) Listen to other people’s ideas, no matter how different they may be from your own...
2) Embrace and promote a spirit of selfless service...
3) Ask great questions...
4) Don’t fall prey to your own publicity...
