Where Credit is Due

Meet Seth Godin, the author of Tribes — We Need You to Lead Us, but more importantly, the marketing guru and a leader with a BIG heart!

I’m frequently asked about getting credit.

People want to know how to be sure they get credit for an idea, especially when they have a boss who wants to steal it.

Real leaders don’t care.

If it’s about your mission [and not about you], about spreading the faith, about seeing something happen, not only do you not care about credit, you actually want other people to take credit.

There’s no record of Martin Luther King Jr., or Gandhi whining about credit.

Credit isn’t the point.  Change is.

Wow!
