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’.  It 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.”?

Client Testimonials

Sally was a vital, positive and engaging Chairperson and expert speaker at the EA/PA Skills Forum, which I produced for Tonkin Corporation. Sally was a popular speaker and a vital element of the forum. Her energy and enthusiasm for her subject is infectious, her delivery I would describe as electric as she buzzes across the stage. One delegate described her in the feedback as simply “Brilliant.” I highly recommend Sally as a coach and speaker.
