As Leadership expert John Maxwell Says “Anyone can steer the ship, but the leader charts the course.”
Leaders navigate both the company and even to some degree a group within their respective industry into uncharted waters. They look at the wake others are leaving and create a new wake that somehow seems hipper and cooler, one that leads to discoveries and a new destination.
If you are a great leader, cultivate several competent people to steer the ship. Then find a select few that you can mentor to charting great courses!
