To draw the most from your employees, focus on achievement as a group.

When Benjamin Franklin began to put together a public library in Philadelphia, he needed the help of many friends. Instead of claiming the idea, he presented it as a collaborative effort, expediting the process.

Franklin emphasized this simple strategy for leadership: Don’t worry about who gets credit. If the effort works, never fear. Credit will follow for both the idea and your humility.

— Adapted from “Benjamin Franklin and The Art of Humility,” Walter Isaacson, Newsweek.
