Every day, I try to read a page from John Maxwell’s book, Leadership Promises for Every Day. Today, I read about leaders who attract leaders verses leaders who attract followers and it made me ponder about who I am attracting into my orbit, into my circle of influence. Someone once said, “we attract people like ourselves into our orbit.
In the book of 1 Kings 4:34 it is written, “And men of all nations, from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom, came to hear the wisdom of Solomon.
Maxwell advises that as we look for potential leaders in companies, churches and the community, we should realize that there are two kinds of leaders: those who attract followers and those who attract leaders. People who attract and team up only with followers will never be able to do anything beyond their narrow confines. However, leaders who attract other leaders are able to build coalition, collaborate on a variety of issues and leverage a wide network to achieve incredible success.
Look for a leader who attracts other leaders before investing in a company.
