When we read about successful people, we often read about how capable he is in certain field of specialty.
Warren Buffet, the Oracle of Omaha, world’s greatest stock market investor.
Bill Gates, Billionaire Computer Genius, world’s richest man.
We tend to overemphasis on the man and overlooked the fact that successful men are successful because they are surrounded by a team of talented people.
Warren have Charlie Munger. Bill have Steve Ballmer.
Liu Bei have Zhang Fei, Guan Yu and Zhao Yun.
Sun Quan have Zhou Yu, Zhang Zhao, Zhang Hong, Cheng Pu.
Empires are not build by one man. 江山不是一个人打出来的。
As a leader, people skill, of recruiting and retaining talents, is far more important capability than his own capability.
