Relevant Leadership = Relevant Success
By Kenton Lee
Success. That’s what it’s all about, right? Everything we do – all of our efforts, resources, time, and energy – all goes to ensuring success. But what is success? And, more appropriately, what does success look like in today’s society? What is relevant success?
Relevant success is different than you might expect, but it makes sense. Relevant success is all the people around you and the people attached to your mission. True success is all about people.
A leader could run their team into the ground trying to make money. A person could backstab and ignore others and lie and cheat and steal to get to the top. Organizations can lose sight of everything else in hopes of achieving a goal.
But what really matters?
In the end, the only thing that matters is people. Gaining money while ignoring relationships is not success. Achieving goals at the expense of hurting or ignoring people or damaging the opportunities for a good and full life is not success. The beginning and the end of relevant success is all about people.
Relevant leaders seek relevant success – and that success is centered on people.
