Working with Jimmy Cagney made me a better actor. (Because his magnetism brought out the best performance in his co-actors.)

Youre not leading if others arent benefitting.Leading is positive & productive in purpose & generates positive emotions which encourage employees to cooperate & contribute.When youre competently leading people, youre simultaneously motivating them.

One of the quickest/easiest ways for leaders to benefit/serve co-workers is to clear a path to the goals you/they (WE) are trying to achieve = run interference for them like blockers for a running back in football. Operationalize the goal showing co-workers the what, why, who, when, where, & how of pursuing the goal = SERVICERemove obvious organizational barriers to goal achievement, such as inadequate resources, lack of training, or work overload = SERVICEKeep co-workers informed daily about progress = SERVICE

The PATH is more important than the goal

because you learn more about success from traveling the path than from achieving the goal.

Zamples of 4 path-goal scenarios
