How we determine success can often change throughout our career, and as we grow in stature within our organisations and are entrusted with the responsibility of teams to lead, there is an undeniable shift that has to take place, if we are to do so effectively.

Sharing a quote by American Business Executive Jack Welch, George Tabone, Head of Service Delivery at Konnekt, sums this up succinctly. The quote goes: “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”

Commenting on this insight on social media, Mr Tabone writes, “this is a challenging shift if you are used to only having to worry about yourself and your own day-to-day stuff. However, if you change your mindset to that of serving your team, you’ll find it a lot easier.”

Indeed, much has been said about the qualities of a great leader, but ultimately, steering the growth of the people you are responsible for may be seen to top that list.

As Joseph Friggieri, Principal and Director of the Malta Leadership Institute explored in a recent article on the subject, “an excellent leader holds his status of leader by taking this step to enhance their team members.”

CEO and business coach Nathan Farrugia also has some wise words on the subject, delving into why leadership development should be accessible to every employee within your organisation in another recent article.
