Quote for the Episode from John Maxwell:
John Maxwell’s Developing the Leaders Around You: “If you really want to be a successful leader, you must develop other leaders around you. You must establish a team. You must find a way to get your vision seen, implemented, and contributed to by others. The leaders sees the big picture, but he needs other leaders to help make his mental picture a reality.”
