The truth is...
Successful organizations are led by successful people. Leadership success is created through healthy relationships and productive cultures that produce results.
As the leader grows, so does the organization. The ability to grow or stay stagnant always lies within the leader because they are the biggest constraint within the organization.
Companies like Kodak, Eastern Airlines, Circuit City, Blockbuster, and many others have gone out of business because their leadership teams either made bad decisions or lost focus on how to continually innovate.
