Power move. Leaders get stronger by lifting others up.

Maybe that’s why Albert Einstein said only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.

And Winston Churchill said: “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what give.”  Leaders give of themselves. The more they give, the more they get, as author Ralph Waldo Emerson said:

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”

Championing others a leader invariably unearths hidden resources, leverages differences,  fosters greater productivity and mines increased profitability.
