Thought for today:
‘No one will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.’
— Andrew Carnegie

Is it acceptable to edit a famous quotation?
I’ve edited this one, ever so slightly, because times have changed since Mr Carnegie said (almost) this.
He said “No man…”.
I don’t think that is appropriate.
Of course, you might think I used this quote because I was thinking about the US Election.
In fact, I was prompted to use it by some stories I heard yesterday about good leaders of teams.
And some stories of bad leaders of teams.
I listened to a presentation last night by David B. Peterson, well know coach and mentor.
In it, he said leadership and learning are inextricably linked.
Some leaders need to learn this.
