Great leaders inspire people to be their best and to do their best work. If you have a team of people working with you, ask yourself: “Am I doing something to make them do the best that they can do?”
Every CEO is at the top position for a reason. It’s not just to earn lots of money; being at the top includes the greatest responsibility of making sure the company runs smoothly. Part of that is being a mentor to the people under them.
