Many large companies are run by men who can be more aptly described as winners than leaders. They have obtained the position by winning over their peers. They have built their career on a series of successive wins. These wins have translated into the culminating victory of their focused assignment.
However, there is a significant difference between a winner and a leader. A winner is more concerned with achieving the next personal gain. A leader is focused on the authentic wins of his team. He is empowering their victories. Their gain is the organization’s gain and the organization’s gain is his gain.
The true leader must transcend winning with serving. He must change his focus from goals to mission.
