When we help others get better at something we’ve mastered, we’re sharing the riches of our wisdom. That kind of teaching should be a vital priority for all leaders, but it shouldn’t be the only priority. We should also be looking for the unique qualities that others seem to exhibit, and we should be encouraging them as much as possible.
It’s not about ignoring bad things. They need to be addressed, but they don’t need to dominate your interactions with people. Spend more time helping them find their own riches and watch them soak up yours as well.
