A Good Leader is There For You

Think about someone in a powerful position.

Are they there for the team or are they there for themselves?

A good leader makes everyone else aware of the fact that they’re there for you.

To see situations from others’ perspectives.

To make decisions with the team’s best interest in mind.

To help develop the skills in others necessary to advance their careers.

And, ensure that everyone has the resources to meet their objective.

In definition, this is similar to servant leadership.

Servant leadership isn’t necessarily a leadership style for say, but a way of behaving over time.

Contrary to top-down leadership styles, people who put the needs of others before themselves leads to higher engagement, more trust, stronger relationships between team members, and an increase in innovation.
