John Maxwell in Developing Leaders Around You

Acquiring and keeping good people is a leader’s most important task.

There is no success without a successor.

Everything rises and falls on leadership.
Systems become dated. Buildings deteriorate. Machinery wears. But people can grow, develop, and become more effective if they have a leader who understands their potential value. Acquiring and keeping good people is a leader’s most important task.

Most leaders have followers around them. They believe the key to leadership is gaining more followers. Few leaders surround themselves with other leaders, but the ones who do bring great value to their organizations. And not only is their burden lightened, but their vision is also carried on and enlarged.
