Stewardship of Opportunity Begets Greater Opportunity

Recently read Mentoring 101 by John Maxwell and here are some highlights from my standpoint:

  • If you want to grow and become the best person you can be, you’ve got to be intentional about it.
  • Make people development your top priority.
  • Two kinds of leaders:  those who attract followers and those who attract other leaders.
  • If you want good ides, you need a lot of ideas.
  • #1 Build people up by encouragement.  #2 Give people credit by acknowledgement.  #3 Give people recognition by gratitude.
  • Commitment is one quality above all others that enables a potential leader to become a successful leader.
  • When it’s bad for the individual and bad for the organization — everyone loses.
  • When it’s good for the individual but bad for the organization — the organization loses.
  • When it’s bad for the individual but good for the organization — the individual loses.
  • When it’s good for the individual and good for the organization — everyone wins.
