50 posts 50 rules: tom peters on leadership 28

28. Leaders don’t fall prey to their own success.A leader is someone who almost never “arrives” They cannot truly “make it” because there is another hill to take, another change to make, another rule to break. ;-)It is one thing to recognize you are successful but leaders recognize that success as a leader is achieved through one team. Taking credit for this (a necessary prerequisite to concluding you have arrived) is asinine. No real leaders stay humble and often are so busy with the next challenge they often forget to stop and enjoy the moment of success.Challenge: When you achieve your next goal take a moment to celebrate with your team. Buy a round of coffee’s, pastries anything and enjoy the moment. Be sure to give them the credit that is due, take none for yourself.
