Want to attract more people for your personal creative team?

Here’s a way: Don’t always take credit for what you’ve done. In fact, go out of your way to recognize others and share credit with them.

Want an even better idea? Give credit away completely to the others on your creative team.

Maybe your response is, “Hmmmmm. If I don’t get my due credit for great work, it’s going to make me look less valuable!” If that’s what you’re thinking, you haven’t been paying attention.

The more successes you create around you, the more apparent it will be that you are the common denominator for successes in your organization. Quit worrying about yourself and start giving credit to everyone else to whom it’s due.
