A leader is best when people barely know he exists

 

This is one of my favorite leadership quotes. The idea that a team would be so intrinsically motivated to complete a goal they forget where the objective actually came from.  To build and motivate a team to this level is difficult. To me, this is the definition of true leadership.

What do you think?

  1. Sir, I appreciated your article on submarine leadership lessons. I am an EMCS(SS) with almost twenty years in. I retire in a couple more and I am interested in pursuing a career in leadership coaching and team building. I am getting ready to start taking classes en route to a leadership degree. If you wouldn’t mind sharing, I would like to know how you transitioned into your new career. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Respectfully,
    Mike Mercer
