“If I accept you as you are, I make you worse; however, if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming I help you become that.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A leader’s job is to help people become what they are capable of, to help them live into their potential. For a variety of reasons few of us are aware of our potential, of what we are capable of becoming. What most of us need is a guide; someone who can see that potential in us, treat us as though we are what we are capable of, and help us become that.
