Adding value

Centered leaders add value instead of dividing it.  

Do you know any leaders who bicker about who is in charge of what and who has what authority? How does it feel to work with them?  

Do you know any leaders who focus on the vision of the ultimate outcome and do their best to contribute at every stage, without worrying about who gets the credit and who's in charge?  

Centered leaders add value because they know that in the long run, that's the true sweet spot. Adding value, instead of dividing it up and attaching their name to every major accomplishment, has a longer shelf life and better flavor.  

What are you doing to add value to your organization today?
