The single biggest way to impact an organization is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organization that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.
