We’ve talked about how A players got that way: by leading B players into A players.
But who leads he/she who leads you?
To leverage a classic video-game term, this person needs a “1-Up”.
I define a 1-Up as “Extending council and grace to whoever is 1-Up from you on your team, so that they can grow, too.”
Giving them a 1-Up will give them ‘extra life’ to serve more powerfully.
Great teams understand that leadership flows both ways.
The rest are either too selfish or too afraid to try.
