Smart Enough To . . .

I got some good leadership advice at the Y the other day.

I was speaking with someone about the business that he owns and operates. He summarized its success by saying, “I’m smart enough to hire people smarter than me.”

I like that.

In many ways, I’ve lived it at Good Shepherd. I didn’t set out to hire people smarter than me, mind you, but when I see the way the staff takes some raw ideas that I have and improves them exponentially, that’s the conclusion I have to reach. You’ll see a lot of that in the design and execution of our next series, What Child Is This?

With what kind of people are you surrounding yourself?
