I had very successful C-suite executive ask me recently, “Michael, how do I get my team to complete their projects on time and under budget?” Have you ever thought the same thing? Perhaps you have to convince not only your work team to complete their projects in a timely, cost-effective way, but you also have to convince your team at home — your husband, or wife, or kids — to do the same thing!
I struggled with the exact same question. And what worked for me, and what I’ve seen work for countless others, is when I threw all my time, energy, and efforts in to serving those who “serve” me. That is, when I truly embraced Servant Leadership.
