There’s a real paradox in modern leadership – individual achievement is typically what brings us the recognition we need to get promoted into a leadership role, but it is our ability to help others succeed is what ultimately qualifies us to be a leader.
This sometimes means that you have to let others take credit for the good things that you help initiate/achieve.
And, while this may seem unfair at times, if you help enough people achieve enough success, you become known as someone who routinely helps others do good work.
As they say, what goes around comes around …
