Many times some of the best (developing) leaders are strong leaders but don’t realize they are.
A lot of the great leaders have very high standards for themselves. Because they have such aggressive goals, they often don’t achieve all they’d like to achieve.
Because they didn’t meet their own expectations, they often don’t feel like they are doing a great job.
It is fun to invest in this type of growing leader. Since they don’t feel like they are great, they are often very teachable.
Those who think they are already good often aren’t as hungry to grow—ultimately limiting their potential.
