Friday’s Leaderly Quotation: Lao-Tzu on Teamwork and Self-Empowerment
This week’s leaderly quotation is brought to you by 6th Century Chinese philosopher and mystic Lao-Tzu , sharing his philosophy on leadership and teamwork.
After reading this, take some time to reflect on how you practice your own leadership and how you interact with your co-workers and colleagues.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists,
not so good when people obey and acclaim him,
worse when they despise him.
But of a good leader,
who talks little,
when his work is done,
his aim fulfilled,
they will say:
“We did this to ourselves.”
