“[good] leaders look out the window to attribute success to factors other than themselves. When things go poorly, however, they look in the mirror and blame themselves, taking full responsibility.

– Jim Collins

Our thoughts on this quote:

In his inspiring book “Good to Great“, Jim Collins finds this important quality in those leaders with the highest performing teams.

We believe that we need to expect this quality not only from good leaders but in all of us. Being held accountable for your own doing is ultimately the highest form of reassurance in your own capabilities and greatness.

Our advice: Believe in the greatness of all your people – one’s personal commitment should be apparent to everyone.
