Leadership Promises - Don't Try to Fly Solo

"Two are better than one . . . and a threefold cord is not quickly broken." Ecclesiastes 4:9,12
Leadership Promises - Don't Try to Fly Solo
Leadership Promises - Don't Try to Fly Solo.
As much as we admire solo achievement, the truth is that no lone individual has done anything of value. Frontiersman Daniel Boone had companions from the Transylvania Company as he blazed the Wilderness Road. Sheriff Wyatt Earp had his brothers and Doc Holiday looking out for him. Aviator Charles Lindbergh had the backing of nine businessmen from St Louis and the services of the Ryan Aeronautical Company who built his plane. Even scientist Albert Einstein didn't work in a vacuum.

The history of America is marked by the accomplishments of many strong leaders and innovative individuals who took great risks-but those people always were part of teams.

A Chinese proverb states that "behind an able man there are always other able men." The truth is that teamwork is at the heart of great achievement. One is too small a number to achieve greatness. You cannot do anything of real value alone.
