A sign of a good leader is not how many followers you have, but how many leaders you create. (Mahatma Gandhi, late Indian activist)
It’s been noted that you’re not a good leader if no one is following you. That’s obvious, isn’t it? When your leadership is over, is there anyone to take the reins and lead the enterprise forward? If not, how successfully have you led? So, Gandhi’s comment is more challenging than merely counting the number of followers. Successful leading demands helpful training.
Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher (Luke 6:40).
