Quenching a Thirst for Results
Alexander the Great, the Greek king, once led his troops
across a hot, arid desert. After nearly two weeks of marching, he and his soldiers were near death from thirst, yet Alexander pushed ahead.
In the noonday sun, two of his scouts brought what little water they were able to find for him to drink. It barely filled a cup. Alexander's troops were shocked when he poured the water into the burning sand. The king said:
"It is of no use for one to drink when many thirst."
Treating those who report to you as partners or associates will not work if it's only a scheme of a strategy. It must be a genuine heart-felt expression.They must feel you value them and trust them.
Hire good people, believe in them, develop them and support them. When we truly believe in the potential of people, they rarely disappoint us.
Starting today, vow that you will treat your associates as partners, not subordinates. This just may quench your thirst for results.
