Leadership - Finding Good People is a Top Priority For Great Leaders

Mark Bowser

Visitors: 231

Successful teams are made up of successful people. Because of this fact, great leaders make finding good people one of their top priorities. America's foremost business philosopher Jim Rohn said that, “Good people are found, not changed. Recently I read a headline that said, ‘We don't teach our people to be nice. We simply hire nice people. ’ Wow! What a clever short cut. "

Mr. Rohn is right. It is a clever short cut to hire quality people. The truth of the matter is that we can't make people change. A number of years ago, I was at a banquet where Dr. Mike Murdock was the speaker. Dr. Murdock knowing what I do for a living, singled me out during his presentation. He called me by name in front of the entire audience and said, “You can't change anyone unless they want to be changed. " That wasn't something I wanted to hear but Dr. Murdock being older and wiser knew I needed to hear it.

I wanted to change the world. I wanted everyone to listen to me. I wanted everyone to move when I spoke, to sit in awe of my great vision and words. I was young and naïve. We can't change, motivate, turn around anyone unless they want to be changed, motivated or turned around. So, the moral of the story if you will is to simply be extremely picky on who you allow on your team. Finding great people is a great, clever short cut to success.
