While working on some content for an ebook I’m writing, I came up with this passage about confidence and thought it might be relevant to leaders.
Here it is:
An average leader has confidence in himself,
A good leader inspires people to have confidence in their leader,
A great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.
Great leaders are able to see their own potential, see the potential of others, and they are able to draw that potential out of them.
As a leader it’s not enough to just have confidence in yourself, it’s not enough to inspire your people to have confidence in you as their leader, but you’ve got to be able to inspire your people to have confidence in themselves.
