Leaders sometimes forget that they need their people.

And people sometimes forget that they need effective leaders.

Husbands and wives need each other.

Teachers need their students.

And do I really need to add that students need teachers?

Writers need an audience.

The audience is waiting for insightful writers.

Coaches need players and even the great players need coaches.

We forget this sometimes.

We think that we can make it on our own.

We consider others, with all of their flaws (and they do have flaws), to be inconvenient and unnecessary.

But they’re not unnecessary.

We need you, warts and all.

And you need us.

Together we can do great things!
