Leadership is not about you. It’s about everyone else. It’s about everyone you may be fortunate enough in your life to serve, to help, to benefit, to teach, to raise up above yourself.
Greater Than Yourself – The Ultimate Lesson of Leadership by Steve Farber is not a “how to” book about leadership, it’s a “what” book about leadership. Once you’ve learned the ultimate lesson of leadership, the “how to” is just detail. And once you’ve read “Greater Than Yourself” and taken the “GTY” concept to heart, you’ll want to read The Radical Leap Re-Energized: Doing What You Love In the Service of People Who Love What You Do, also by Steve Farber.
Same author, two different stories, same theme: Leadership is not about you, it’s about everyone else.
