I am not sure when this shift occurred within me, but I am glad it did. For me the progression went from wanting to be the best technician to becoming the best teacher. Even though both of these are based in service, they are still ultimately based on personal accolades. Then there was the transition period where I was determined to take care of others so they could succeed. I didn’t want formal recognition; however, “hoped” others knew I was the one growing my team. Now, I am more like a proud father who gets excited when my team succeeds and my efforts are not obvious. We all know how good it feels to get the recognition for a job well done, let’s help our team experience that. I promise the reward is in their success.
