I’m reading a terrific book called “Tribal Leadership.”
It’s about moving people in organizations from a “Me” mentality to a “We” mentality.
It explains how people that focus on personal achievements don’t build legacy. Only people that focus on things bigger than themselves build legacy. Counterintuitive but true.
It’s made me realize that all the “cool” stuff I got to do (Olympics, adventure travel, etc.) was just school for learning the principles of success.
Once I shifted gears and started sharing the principles through my books, posts and presentations – once I shifted my focus on helping others succeed – THATS when I can create something bigger than myself and leave a legacy through the ripple effect created by the people who apply what I teach.
It turns out that the best and most effective organizations (business, non-profit, schools, etc.) have moved their people to sincerely thinking about what’s best for the team and by doing so they thrive and everyone feels better and have more fun.
Great read wether you are the CEO of a multinational corporation or a sole practitioner like myself.
Make it an Olympic day!
