Followers or Leaders
@tom_peters posted on twitter: “Leaders don’t create more followers, they create more leaders.” – Tom Peters
I do like this quote from Tom Peters as it inspires and challenges. The interpretation I am going to apply to this quote is that it:
- inspires leaders to be good role models as others are ‘following’.
- challenges leaders to consider and invest in developing followers into future leaders.
Both of these require certain doses of maturity, self awareness, self confidence, thinking, judgment, confidence in others, to name a few.
What’s your interpretation of the quote: “Leaders don’t create more followers, they create more leaders.”?
