What should you look for when you’re recruiting people to your side? Here are the five key areas I believe you should focus on:...
(From the article): I keep a constant eye out for potential leaders no matter where I go, and I encourage you to do the same. Look for men and women with a good attitude who genuinely like others and want to help make their community a better place. Look for people who have the character and discipline to follow through on their word. I promise you, they are out there. But once you discover them, don’t stop there! Have a cup of coffee with them, or spend some time getting to know them. You can’t develop leaders if you’re not willing to invest your time and effort. At first, this might feel like you’re sacrificing “work” time for something lower-priority, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The time you invest in developing other leaders will multiply your efforts. Together, you’ll be able to achieve much more than you could ever do alone. Whether you’re a one-man show looking to expand or an established leader looking to break through to the next level, the truth is you can’t achieve your best without a team to help you. Good leaders deliberately seek out and find potential leaders. Great leaders not only find them; they help them become great leaders in their own right.
