When we think of successes and failures as a leader, we generally think in terms of hitting our revenue targets, growing our client base, quality of our services or products or reputation of our company.
Rarely do we measure ourselves according to the impact that we are having on the people around us, how they experience working with us, and how this could be contributing to their successes or failures.
The paradox is that if we focused as much of our energy on having positive outcomes with people; the revenue, clients, quality and reputation of our companies would be more successful. One thing that is certain is that the revenue, quality and other aspects of our company will not remember us, whereas the people always will.
What do we want others to remember about us?
