Access Point: A Leader Builds People
"You don’t grow businesses, you grow people."
- James McPartland
In my work with CEOs, business leaders, and professional athletes, we dig deep to understand what it takes to align the potential of an organization with the potential inside each member of that group, team, or company.
When people collaborate together, they come to see that potential is only unlocked to the extent that each team member takes personal responsibility for their own life, results, and performance. It is impossible to change other people, and a full-time job to change ourselves. People “hear” what they see, and our actions tell almost everything people need to know about us. Therefore, the example we set – in developing ourselves – is the key to both realizing our personal potential and ultimately igniting the spark in others who very much want the same for themselves.
A leader does not build a company, organization, business, or team. A leader builds people – and that ultimately builds their enterprise – which unlocks the power of potential and opens the door to improved culture, a common creed, and amazing results.
