It can be easy to point out flaws about others and walk away, especially if you have no stake in their success. Having a ‘me first’ outlook doesn’t highlight you as a leader. Helping others and thinking ‘we’ means having concern with others and being a stakeholder in their success. A ‘me’-minded leader thinks of things in how only they think it should be and how it affects them. A ‘we’-minded leader looks at things from a team standpoint—‘how can I help the team’ or ‘how does this affect us’? Pointing out someone’s flaws and not extending a helping hand speaks volumes about the kind of leader you are. Being a ‘we’ leader helps everyone succeed.
