    David, this statement “Leadership is about measuring your personal performance by your team’s performance. Their achievement is your achievement.” is powerful!
    This is a key aspect of leadership. I’m also convinced there are times when measuring either team or individual performance by traditional metrics isn’t healthy or helpful.
    Thanks for highlighting this important distinction!

      Hi Hannah, thanks for your feedback! This principle was hard for me because I always prided myself as a high-performance person. It was humbling and a little scary to realize that that’s not really the metric for effective leadership.
