Leadership Minute: Call Forth the Best


Epictetus said, “The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.” As a leader it’s nice to be surrounded with like-minded people who share similar passions and dreams. But are you nurturing those passions in others? One of the privileges of leadership is having the opportunity to invest in the people around you. As you call forth the best in others you will eventually raise everyone to a higher level. Don’t be discouraged by what you may see around you today. Calling forth the best in others is a process that pays great dividends. Don’t give up!
