Leadership is like parenting. We would do anything to set our children up for success. We know one day they are going to leave the nest and be on their own and we want them to be able to function. Those on our teams are the same way. One day, they are going to leave the nest and lead teams of their own. We need to spend our days strengthening the skills of our teammates so they can succeed. Ironically, doing this makes us better leaders and prepares us for more advanced roles.
